[ecrea] Summer school on comparative qualitative research on journalism and news media

Sun Mar 19 00:25:17 GMT 2017

The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is hosting a summer school on comparative qualitative research on journalism and news media 11-12 September 2017 in Oxford.

The program will combine seminars led by Oxford-based researchers including Lucas Graves, Annika Sehl, and Rasmus Kleis Nielsen with workshop discussions of work-in-progress from the participants.

The aim is to:

1. Significantly advance our shared understanding of the methodological issues involved in advancing genuinely comparative and internationally-oriented qualitative research on journalism and news media,

2. Explicitly engage with theoretical discussions that can help structure such work and clarify its contribution (beyond describing interesting and sometimes intrinsically important cases), most notably recent work drawing on institutional theory and science and technology studies.

3. Help the participants think about their own individual research as contributing to a collective and cumulative attempt to understand the evolution of news and journalism, and to identify potential collaborators for cross-country studies.

The summer school is for advanced doctoral students and early career researchers, who can apply to take part by sending an abstract of no more than 500 words outlining the central research question, empirical basis, and driving hypotheses and intellectual stakes of the work that they would like to present to Philippa Garson at (philippa.garson /at/ <mailto:(philippa.garson /at/> no later than May 31.
