Journalism Research and Education Section

The Journalism Research & Education section is IAMCR’s home for critical engagement with journalism. Its principal task is to promote the conduct and dissemination of research into all facets of journalism and journalism education. This ranges from journalism theories to journalism practice as it shapes and is shaped by emerging technologies, markets, and industries. In journalism education the emphasis of inquiry continues to be on teaching, professionalism, journalistic ethics and changes imposed on professional education through changes in technology.

This section endeavours to approach journalism research and education from a global perspective. It seeks to probe paradigms born out of the western dominated discourse which no longer adequately capture the many transitional media systems around the globe. The section strongly encourages collaborative research as a way of bridging these gaps in the research of journalism and journalism education.

Chair (Interim): Sadia Jamil [Contact]
Vice-chair: Oliver Hahn [Contact]
Vice-chair: Abiodun Salawu [Contact]
