New Project: Journalistic Role Performance

Recently, I joined a network led by my colleague Claudia Mellado at the University of Santiago in Chile, which will examine whether journalists’ professional views and role perception actually matter much in the content they produce. The project, called Journalistic Role Performance around the Globe, will be conducted in 25 very diverse countries, and promises to yield some unique insights into journalistic practices.

I will be conducting the fieldwork in Australia,which will include a content analysis of four newspapers, and subsequent surveys with the journalists who produced that content. The study was recently awarded a small grant of $6000 through the Journalism Education Association of Australia Grants for Excellence in Journalism Research.
