Journalism studies / Media studies / Cultural studies
Narrative: My work employs a cultural perspective to assess journalism within a changing media and cultural landscape in which basic notions of journalistic authority, identity, and professionalism have come to be questioned and challenged. Other research explores tensions between old and new media forms, the development of new media technology, and the role of collective memory among interpretive communities.
Higher purpose. Greater good.
