EMSAH Research Seminar - Reader Construction in Interactive Online Journalism - The Imaginary Public in 3 Danish Online Newsrooms
- Full Description:
- Interactivity and User Generated Content (UGC) have long been buzzwords in the literature of online journalism and in mainstream news-media sites in general. In this paper I look at how Danish online journalists construct their readers, seeking to explain how these views affect practices of journalism. Rather than looking at how social and technological factors constrain the realisation of the interactive potentials, a constructivist approach is used to explore theoretically and empirically why some forms of interactivity are often rejected in the newsroom, while others are accepted and even embraced.
About the Presenter: Jannie Møller Hartley is a Journalist and PhD scholar at Roskilde University, Denmark, in the Department of Communication, Business and Information Technologies.
