My article-based PhD project examines how new technology, and the ongoing visualization of news, are changing the presentation forms and the epistemic practices of investigative journalism. The project deploys a variety of qualitative methods and draws upon theoretical perspectives from epistemology, field theory and visual culture theory to analyze the knowledge claims and stories investigative journalism makes about the world, but also about itself. The project will contribute mainly to three strands of scholarship within journalism studies: journalism as boundary work and knowledge-producing field, the digital epistemologies of journalism and to the study of investigative journalism.
