教师简介Introduction of Professor
Stuart Allan，Professor of Journalism and Communication, Cardiff University, UK(the 5th in the UK and the 29th in the world for communication and media Studies, QS 2023 ). Stuart has published widely in journalism, media and cultural studies. He has authored seven books. His research has also appeared in numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and contributions to edited collections, and has been translated into several languages. He is a founding co-editor of the online journal Journalism Education (published by the Association for Journalism Education), and serves on the editorial boards of several international journals, including Journalism: Theory, Practice and Criticism; Digital Journalism; New Media & Society; Media, War & Conflict; Communication, Culture & Critique; Text & Talk; Environmental Communication; Time & Society; Journalism & Communication Monographs; and Global Media and China.
This module introduces students to a series of key ideas, concepts, questions and issues central to the academic study of journalism, as well as significant scholarly and professional debates regarding the role of journalism in Western societies.
Students will consider research into the forms, practices, institutions and audiences of Western journalism. They will compare and contrast scholarly and professional approaches to understanding the evolving nature of news in light of recent trends and developments. Theoretical frameworks will help them better understand journalists' work and its perceived influence on societies such as Britain and the United States. In this way, students will be encouraged to rethink what counts as journalism and how its public service commitments may be improved in the future.
Topics to be explored include: Historical debates over the role of the press in the public sphere; the changing political economy of Western news media; debates over whether journalists can be “objective” or “impartial” in their reporting; criticisms that the news media can be sexist in their representation of women, or sometimes racist with regard to ethnic minorities; the rise of citizen journalism and the challenges it poses for the future of journalism as a profession; the changing nature of war reporting; photojournalism and the digital manipulation of the truth; the future of science and environmental journalism; and questions regarding how social media influence the ways news media cover global crises.
Lectures will be 90 minutes in duration, followed by 30 minutes for Questions and Answers.
