Citizenship and journalistic practices

Projektin yksityiskohdat


The aim of this international network of academics and practitioners is to map out the different ways in which cultural and political citizenship is formulated by and through journalistic practices across nations and communities as well as in historical perspectives. This mapping exercise will serve to contextualise the current debates about active and mediated citizenship, particularly as expressed in citizen journalism, UGC, and social media.
