The Journalism Studies Research Group at ICS meets regularly to bring together staff and research postgraduate students with an interest in journalism, broadly defined. Our members consist of specialists in journalism practice and research, though most have experience in both areas, and the interests of members cut across the many strands of communications research underway at the ICS.
The Journalism Studies Research Group meets approximately monthly for presentations and discussion of research, pedagogy and current issues in journalism. Future meetings will explore potential research collaborations and provide opportunities for staff and research students to discuss their work.
For more information about the group, and to get involved in its activities, please contact the current coordinator, Julie Firmstone, firstname.lastname@example.org
