Journalism in an Edited Society
Centralized control with the ever-growing flow of mediated information is no longer possible. Journalism is increasingly the joint product of networks of ‘editors’ that include political actors, experts, and the media. The public, in its turn, is being divided up into a number of specialized niches. At the same time, the struggle to secure both the attention and the loyalty of the public is becoming more intense, further emphasizing the need for a qualified editing process. How do different media tackle this task? How does the average Dane navigate the complex mass of communication being offered by such networks? And, what are the implications of this development for citizens’ ability to participate in the democratic process?
The theme is coordinated by Professor Anker Brink Lund, and includes eight research projects.
