Australian journalism studies after ‘Journalism’: breaking down the disciplinary boundaries (for good)
Harrington, Stephen (2012) Australian journalism studies after ‘Journalism’: breaking down the disciplinary boundaries (for good). Media International Australia incorporating Culture and Policy, 2012(144), pp. 156-162.
This paper argues that if journalism is to remain a relevant and dynamic academic discipline, it must urgently reconsider the constrained, heavily-policed boundaries traditionally placed around it (particularly in Australia). A simple way of achieving this is to redefine its primary object of study: away from specific, rigid, professional inputs, towards an ever-growing range of media outputs. Such a shift may allow the discipline to freely re-assess its pedagogical and epistemological relationships to contemporary newsmaking practices (or, the ‘new’ news).
