Research within the Department of Journalism is structured into four areas:
Gender and diversity issues in journalism, including related matters of policy and practice (Franks, Howell, Blumell and Lonsdale)
International journalism, including humanitarian news and coverage of conflict (Tasiu, Bunce, Cooper, Franks, Harb, Rodgers and Tumber)
Journalism in the public interest, including policy and practice related to investigative journalism, freedom of information and other regulatory issues, and journalism ethics (Brooke, Felle, Harb, Lashmar, Singer and Tumber)
New and emerging journalism, including innovative forms, models and production methods (Felle, Hewett, Singer, Porlezza and Thurman)
Academic staff and graduate students continue to build on their REF 2014 success with a steady stream of high-quality outputs across all five clusters, including books and book chapters, articles in top-tier academic journals, international conference presentations, workshops and symposia, and the delivery of parliamentary evidence.
