Special issue of New Media & Society and online workshop

News journalism is one of the most influential knowledge-producing institutions in society, and yet it is also one that is undergoing great transformation. Truth, facts, and fake: The shifting epistemologies of news in a digital age addresses the implications of an increased dependency on digital technology for the epistemology of journalism. How are knowledge claims, norms, and practices shaped by the changes and challenges in digital news production? — How do journalists know what they know, and how are their knowledge claims articulated and justified?

SPECIAL ISSUE: We welcome abstracts for selection to encouragement of submission to a special issue of New Media & Society, co-edited by Mats Ekström, University of Gothenburg, Seth C. Lewis, University of Oregon and Oscar Westlund, University of Gothenburg.

WORKSHOP: Moreover, the selected authors will participate in a related online workshop, where drafts specifically and theoretical issues and future research opportunities more generally are shared and rigorously discussed. The workshop is part of a project funded by the University of Gothenburg’s Climate Fund, aiming at developing climate-friendly formats for international research conferences.
