Hi everyone,

The Centre for Journalism and Communication Research (CJCR) in the Media School at Bournemouth University is pleased to announce the publication of Journalism: New Challenges, edited by Karen Fowler-Watt and Stuart Allan.

The free e-book is available to download as a PDF on the CJCR website, where you can also view the Table of Contents and download individual PDFs of each chapter:
http://microsites.bournemouth.ac.uk/cjcr/publications/journalism-new-challenges/

We have also made the full book PDF available via Dropbox: http://j.mp/Journalism-New_Challenges

Journalism: New Challenges contains 29 engaging chapters prepared by academics and journalists, in addition to an introduction by the co-editors Karen Fowler-Watt and Stuart Allan.

In seeking to identify and critique a range of the most pressing challenges confronting journalism today, this book examines topics such as:

* the role of the journalist in a democratic society, including where questions of truth and free speech are concerned;
* the changing priorities of newspaper, radio, television, magazine, photography, and online news organisations;
* the political, economic and technological pressures on news and editorial independence;
* the impact of digital convergence on the forms and practices of newsgathering and storytelling;
* the dynamics of professionalism, such as the negotiation of impartiality and objectivity in news reports;
* journalists’ relationships with their sources, not least where the ‘spin’ of public relations shapes what’s covered, how and why;
* evolving genres of news reporting, including politics, business, sports, celebrity, documentary, war and peace journalism;
* journalism’s influence on its audiences, from moral panics to the trauma of representing violence and tragedy;
* the globalisation of news, including the role of international news agencies;
* new approaches to investigative reporting in a digital era;
* and the rise of citizen journalism, live-blogging and social media, amongst many others.

The chapters are written in a crisp, accessible style, with a sharp eye to the key ideas, concepts, issues and debates warranting critical attention. Each ends with a set of ‘Challenging Questions’ to explore as you develop your own perspective, as well as a list of ‘Recommended Reading’ to help push the conversation onwards.

May you discover much here that stimulates your thinking and, with luck, prompts you to participate in lively debate about the future of journalism.
