Online journalism

This course is structured into six parts. It begins with theory and ends with analyses of online journalism in concrete settings, reiterating the importance of both theoretical and empirically informed work. Thinking of these two parts as the ends of a continuum, we can position the various parts across this continuum: sections on politics, production, practices, and contents approach online journalism and seek to understand its various and complex constituent components, elements, and processes ranging from the theoretical to the empirical, but mostly combining both.
