Abstract [en]

Global journalism is a practice that differs from traditional foreign correspondence. Instead of only covering distant events, it actively interconnects the local with the global. However, while some researchers claim that its practice has been incorporated into everyday news production as a natural response to the increasing interconnectedness of our globalized society, others see few empirical signs of its presence, and instead consider it to be a utopian vision for less “national provincialism” among the world's media. These contrasting views on the evidence for global journalism in the news call for more empirical research. The purpose of this study is thus to examine the prevalence of global journalism in mainstream news media. The article provides, first, an operationalization of global journalism and, second, a quantification of its presence or absence in the news output of three national newspapers, The Times, Le Monde and De Standaard, by means of a quantitative content analysis covering the period January to June 2013 (N = 850). According to our main results, a quarter of all articles include at least one building block of global journalism, and a fifth of all articles are centered on a global event and/or present a global outlook on the reported matter. Le Monde is the most “global” newspaper, as it exhibits the most examples of global journalism. However, the other two newspapers to a greater extent embed global outlooks in their domestic news sections, which might be viewed as an emerging way of producing globalized news discourse in a social reality with ever-more blurred distinctions between domestic and global reality.

Abstract [en]

The purpose is to present an analytical framework for examining cross-professional communication on Twitter from a power perspective. The idea is to facilitate the generation of knowledge about hybridized, cross-professional relations in the networked society and its consequences for democracy. For example, is it mainly a good or bad thing that politicians, PR practitioners and journalists interact openly on Twitter in front of their “audiences” (i.e. followers)? In this context, Twitter should be viewed both as a public sphere and community, which require two different ways of analyzing power and relations of power: • public sphere: the mutual exchange of ideas and/or ongoing debates about common concerns in society between politicians, PR practitioners and journalists, who, due to their different professional fields, remain a certain distance. Here, power relations should be studied in terms of their attempts to influence each other’s’ separate value-systems in wanted directions. • community: the establishment of social grouping and elite networking. Here, power involves the potential “joint language” among politicians, PR practitioners and journalists and what dominates the meaning-making, i.e. how certain terminologies, codes and ideas become preferred meaning while others become marginalized, as well as the potential exclusion of non-elite users from conversations. In the paper, various examples of cross-communication among Swedish politicians, journalists and PR practitioners will be presented and analyzed. The proposed analytical framework will be interpreted in relation to the Almedalen’s political week in Sweden, an annual summer event on the island of Gotland, which very much represents the offline version of the politics-PR-journalism interplay on Twitter.

Abstract [en]

This methodological article presents the research approach of semi-comparisons and describes how it could be applied in the field of media and communication studies. The point of departure is that cross-national collaborations do not necessarily always have to result in full-fledged comparative studies, but can "go halfway", i.e. stay at the semi-comparative level. This is exemplified in terms of an ongoing long-term collaboration between Swedish and Ugandan researchers, focusing on sustainable communication involving the role of media as a provider of relevant information in the case of the climate change issue. The semi-comparative approach – here characterized by: 1) cross-national research connectivity, 2) activities in which one "puts one’s own nation in a wider context" and 3) spontaneous, cross-national research influences – enables the generation of knowledge about the universalism and particularism within the dimensions of mediated climate communication, which would not have been possible with a regular cross-national comparative study.

Abstract [en]

This paper suggests some further avenues of empirical and theoretical investigation for media research on climate change. “Old” suggestions, whose significance, as we see it, needs to be further reinforced, are included, as are “new” ones, which we hope will generate innovative research questions. In order to integrate the analysis with knowledge generated by media research at large, we revisit four research challenges that media scholars have long grappled with in the investigation of journalism: (1) the discursive challenge, i.e. the production, content and reception of media discourse; (2) the interdisciplinary challenge, i.e. how media research might engage in productive collaboration with other disciplines; (3) the international challenge, i.e. how to achieve a more diverse and complex understanding of news reporting globally; and (4) the practical challenge, i.e. how to reduce the theory–practice divide in media research.
