Journalism Elsewhere Symposium

In journalism research, we are familiar with the arguments about the “blurring boundaries” of journalism. There have been calls for going “beyond” journalism or studying journalism “elsewhere” of the mainstream news organizations. This symposium will gather international researchers interested in forms and aspects of journalism that may be practiced by non-journalists: audiences, technologists, or entrepreneurs, for example, or journalism that is published in sites and platforms that go beyond the mainstream. The symposium will thus address the question of what happens in the fringes of the journalistic field (or in the neighboring fields) that we should be aware of in journalism research.
