Description

10.30 am -12:00 noon Research Seminar: Media Research in the Age of Precarity

Venue: La Trobe University’s City Campus, 360 Collins St, 20th floor, Teaching rooms 1 and 2

The New Beats journalism project and La Trobe University’s Transforming Human Societies Research Focus Area are delighted to welcome Professor Mark Deuze for a research seminar on Friday October 27, 2017.

This event will be introduced by Prof Lawrie Zion (Professor of Journalism at la Trobe University and Director of the Research Focus Area Transforming Human Societies). The research seminar will be held at La Trobe University’s City Campus, on the 20th floor of 360 Collins Street, Melbourne,

This seminar, which is designed for post-graduates and other researchers, will focus on the theoretical and methodological challenges of studying media at a time of ongoing transformation of news industries. How can we broaden journalism and media research to understand these profound changes?

A light lunch will be served following the seminar.

Mark Deuze, who is professor of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam, has published extensively on how our lives increasingly feature in the media. As a research partner in the Australian Research Council-funded New Beats project, he has led a study focusing on the aftermath of journalist redundancies in The Netherlands, where, like Australia, newsrooms have contracted in recent years.

His seven books include Media Life (2012, Polity Press), which examines how media functions as a prism to understanding key issues in contemporary society, where reality is open source, identities are - like websites - always under construction, and where private life is lived in public forever more. His research also examines the employment and work experiences of journalists at a time when media work is become ever more precarious. His forthcoming books are Making Media (out in 2018 with Amsterdam University Press, co-edited with Mirjam Prenger), and Beyond Journalism (co-authored with Tamara Witschge, scheduled for 2019 with Polity Press).

Lawrie Zion is Professor of Journalism at La Trobe University and Director of the University’s Transforming Human Society’s Research Focus Area. He also leads the New Beats project which is investigating the aftermath of journalist redundancies.
