As long as there has been news media, there has been audience feedback. This book provides the first definitive history of the evolution of audience feedback, from the early newsbooks of the 16th century to the rough-and-tumble online forums of the modern age. In addition to tracing the historical development of audience feedback, the book considers how news media has changed its approach to accommodating audience participation, and explores how audience feedback can serve the needs of both individuals and collectives in democratic society. Reader writes from a position of authority, having worked as a "letters to the editor" editor and has written numerous research articles and professional essays on the topic over the past 15 years.

An authoritative and detailed illustration of the state of journalistic practice in the United States today, The American Journalist in the 21st Century sheds light on the demographic and educational backgrounds, working conditions, and professional and ethical values of print, broadcast, and Internet journalists at the beginning of the 21st century. Providing results from telephone surveys of nearly 1,500 U.S. journalists working in a variety of media outlets, this volume updates the findings published in the earlier report, The American Journalist in the 1990s, and reflects the continued evolution of journalistic practice and professionalism. The scope of material included here is extensive and inclusive, representing numerous facets of journalistic practice and professionalism, and featuring separate analyses for women, minority, and online journalists. Many findings are set in context and compared with previous major studies of U.S. journalists conducted in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Serving as a detailed snapshot of current journalistic practice, The American Journalist in the 21st Century offers an intriguing and enlightening profile of professional journalists today, and it will be of great interest and value to working journalists, journalism educators, media managers, journalism students, and others seeking insights into the current state of the journalism profession.

Media Studies 2.0 offers an exploration of the digital revolution and its consequences for media and communication studies, arguing that the new era requires an upgraded discipline: a media studies 2.0. The book traces the history of mass-media and computing, exploring their merger at the end of the twenty-century and the material, ecological, cultural and personal elements of this digital transformation. It considers the history of media and communication studies, arguing that the academic discipline was a product of the analogue, broadcast-era, emerging in the early twentieth century as a response to the success of newspapers, radio and cinema and reflecting that era back in its organisation, themes and concepts. Digitalisation, however, takes us beyond this analogue era (media studies 1.0) into a new, post-broadcast era. Merrin argues that the digital-era demands an upgraded academic discipline: one reflecting the real media life of its students and teaching the key skills needed by the twenty-first century user. Media 2.0 demand a media studies 2.0 This original and critical overview of contemporary developments within media studies is ideal for general students of media and communication, as well as those specifically studying new and digital media.

Undocumented immigration across the Mediterranean and the US-Mexican border is one of the most contested transatlantic public and political issues, raising fundamental questions about national identity, security and multiculturalism—all in the glare of news media themselves undergoing dramatic transformations. This interdisciplinary, international volume fills a major gap in political science and communication literature on the role of news media in public debates over immigration by providing unique insider’s perspectives on journalistic practices and bringing them into dialogue with scholars and immigrant rights practitioners. After providing original comparative research by established and emerging international affairs and media scholars as well as grounded reflections by UN and IOM practitioners, the book presents candid, in-depth assessments by nine leading European and North American journalists covering immigration from the frontlines, ranging from the Guardian’s Southern Europe editor to the immigration reporter for the Arizona Republic. Their comparative reflections on the professional, institutional and technological constraints shaping news stories offer unprecedented insight into the challenges and opportunities for 21st century journalism to affect public discourse and policymaking about issues critical to the future of the transatlantic space, making the book relevant across a wide range of scholarship on the media’s impact on public affairs.

New media technologies have become a central part of the sports media landscape. Sports fans use new media to watch games, discuss sports transactions, form fan-based communities, and secure minutiae about their favorite players and teams. Never before have fans known so much about athletes, whether that happens via Twitter feeds, fan sites, or blogs, and never before have the lines between producer, consumer, enactor, fan and athlete been more blurred. The Internet has made virtually everything available for sports media consumption; it has also made understanding sports media substantially more complex. The Routledge Handbook of Sport and New Media is the most comprehensive and in-depth study of the impact of new media in sport ever to be published. Adopting a broad, interdisciplinary approach, the book explores new media in sport as a cultural, social, commercial, economic, and technological phenomenon, examining the profound impact of digital technologies on that the way that sport is produced, consumed and understood. There is no aspect of social life or commercial activity in general that is not being radically influenced by the rise of new media forms, and by offering a "state of the field" survey of work in this area, the Routledge Handbook of Sport and New Media is important reading for any advanced student, researcher or practitioner with an interest in sports studies, media studies or communication studies.

Journalismus. Macht. Wirklichkeit

Wozu Journalismus dient. Woran er krankt. Und was er mit der Politik zu tun hat.

Journalismus – wozu? Das fragt sich so mancher in einer Zeit, in der jedermann in den sozialen Medien und auf seinem Blog selbst Journalist spielen kann. Andreas Koller meint: Gerade in einer solchen Zeit ist professioneller, recherchierender, analysierender Journalismus wichtiger denn je. Nur Profijournalisten können den Informationsüberfluss, der täglich aus allen Kanälen auf die Menschheit schwappt, nach objektivierbaren Kriterien filtern, inhaltlich einordnen, kurz gesagt: Informationsmüll von tatsächlichen Informationen unterscheiden.Die Sache hat allerdings einen Haken: Dieser Journalismus kostet Geld. Und es wird immer schwieriger, ihn zu finanzieren. Sind neue journalistische Geschäftsmodelle vorstellbar? Wenn nein: Was passiert dann mit unserer Demokratie? Wenn ja: Wo sind die Grenzen des recherchierenden Journalismus? Ist jede Wahrheit um jeden Preis zumutbar? Welche Rolle spielt die Politik – und soll sie überhaupt eine Rolle spielen?

Der Partizipative Journalismus ist auch rund 15 Jahre nach Entstehung der ersten Weblogs weiterhin auf dem Vormarsch. Angesichts der zunehmenden Prominenz seiner Plattformen (z. B. Bildblog, GuttenPlag Wiki, Twitter und Wikileaks) stellt sich die Frage nach der Qualität des Partizipativen Journalismus im Web mit besonderer Brisanz. Bevor sich Sven Engesser dieser zentralen Frage widmet, definiert er die dazugehörigen Begriffe, klassifiziert den Gegenstand und entwickelt ein integratives Qualitätskonzept, das sich auf 30 theoretisch abgeleitete Kriterien stützt. Anschließend analysiert er empirisch die Qualität von über 100 Plattformen des Partizipativen Journalismus aus aller Welt und erklärt sie mithilfe inhaltlicher und organisationaler Einflussfaktoren. Die untersuchten Webangebote lassen sich zu drei Gruppen („Exklusive Themenseiten“, „Lokale Medienspiegel“ und „Kommerzielle Spielwiesen“) zusammenfassen, die spezifische Stärken und Schwächen aufweisen. Außerdem offenbaren sich zwischen den Qualitätskriterien interessante Wechselbeziehungen. Insgesamt bietet die Arbeit einen aktuellen Überblick über den Stand der internationalen Forschung und liefert aufschlussreiche Erkenntnisse zum Verständnis von Partizipation, Journalismus und Qualität.

Wissenschaftspopularisierung im 19. Jahrhundert

Bürgerliche Kultur, naturwissenschaftliche Bildung und die deutsche Öffentlichkeit 1848-1914

Mit diesem Buch werden die vielfältigen Formen, in denen noch heute Wissenschaft popularisiert wird, erstmals auf ihre Ursprünge im 19. Jahrhundert zurückgeführt und zentral in die bürgerliche Kultur dieser Zeit eingelagert. Entgegen langlebigen Vorurteilen kann nachgewiesen werden, dass es eine breite, farbige und kulturell tief verwurzelte Tradition der Populärwissenschaft in Deutschland gibt. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, welche Bedeutung die naturwissenschaftliche Bildung in der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft entfaltete. Die Entwicklung des naturkundlichen Vereinswesens und Schulunterrichts und die Ausbreitung einer von Naturwissenschaftlern organisierten Festkultur werden ebenso als Teile der Geschichte bürgerlicher Öffentlichkeit beschrieben wie die rasante Zunahme von populärwissenschaftlichen Zeitschriften und Büchern. Dabei wird zum einen deutlich, wie sich publikumsorientierte Sprach- und Darstellungsformen sowie eigene Gruppen von Wissensvermittlern etablierten. Zum anderen werden die Inhalte und ideologischen Deutungspotentiale, die über populäre Medien vermittelt wurden und zum bürgerlichen Verständnis von Natur beitrugen, besonders betont. Die Geschichte von Öffentlichkeit und Bürgerlichkeit in Deutschland gewinnt auf diese Weise neue Konturen, zumal zahlreiche Interpretationen vorgelegt werden, die über bisherige Forschungsmeinungen hinausweisen. So begreift dieses Buch die Wissenschaftspopularisierung als Teil des Nachwirkens revolutionärer Anliegen von 1848, der Darwinismus wird in seiner ideellen Prägekraft erheblich relativiert, und das Verhältnis von Naturwissenschaften und christlicher Religion findet eine neue Würdigung. Dieses Buch soll eine eklatante Forschungslücke schließen und zugleich die Geschichte der Populärwissenschaft im öffentlichen Bewusstsein der heutigen Mediengesellschaft verankern. Die Darstellung zielt darauf, eine Brücke zu schlagen zwischen der allgemeinen Geschichte, im besonderen der florierenden Bürgertumsforschung, und eher marginalisierten Bereichen wie der Geistes-, Religions- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte. Der Band hat einen fachwissenschaftlichen Charakter, ist aber in seinem leserfreundlichen Stil und der leicht zugänglichen Gliederung für einen weiten Leserkreis geschrieben. Er wendet sich zum einen an alle HistorikerInnen, die neue Erkenntnisse über die deutsche Kultur im 19. Jahrhundert und das Verhältnis von Wissenschaft, Gesellschaft und Öffentlichkeit gewinnen möchten. Zum anderen sind alle historisch interessierten Leser und die Vertreter von Nachbardisziplinen, darunter Literatur- und Kommunikationswissenschaften ebenso wie Theologie und Naturwissenschaften, angesprochen. Das Buch bietet darüber hinaus eine an keiner anderen Stelle greifbare Sammlung von Kurzbiographien, mehrere Tabellen, zahlreiche Abbildungen und erstmalig eine Bibliographie populärwissenschaftlicher Texte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Damit kann dieser Band auch hervorragend als Nachschlagewerk genutzt und über das umfangreiche Orts-, Personen- und Sachregister leicht erschlossen werden.
