Journalism & Activism

This research team focuses on the shifting power relations between journalists and other public actors in the digital era. Journalism remains an important site of communication power where citizens, protesters, PR professionals, tech developers and hackers actively work to shape the news. This team focuses research efforts on understanding the emergent digital tools, platforms and actors in the digital spaces we all navigate, considering how we might master and modify our media environments.

Young people are not only staying informed but making news and changing the culture of media worldwide: That's the finding of a new book by Lynn Schofield Clark, the director of the Estlow International Center for Journalism and New Media, and Regina Marchi of Rutgers University.

Young People and the Future of News: Social Media and the Rise of Connective Journalism is due out this month from Cambridge University Press.
