Description of research and teaching

Ideals and practices of journalism; Participation and news making; Innovation of journalism; Hyperlocal journalism; Identities, localities and media; Discursive approaches to journalism; Learning and teaching journalism

My research has focused on the ideals and practices of journalism. My current research project focuses on hyperlocal publishing and journalism in Finland. During the recent years, I have also explored how dialogue and autonomy are (re)constructed and (re)organized within journalism and with what professional and societal consequences. My interest lies in illuminating how the professional self-understanding of journalists is being negotiated as a meaning-making process across time and place, in and through which idea(l)s and practices are included or excluded, valued or marginalized. The aim of my reserach has also been to deepen the understanding of how professionalism, its tradition, media markets, ownership, and the organizational, cultural, and societal factors affect the discourses and practices of autonomy and dialogue. Such an approach may also be fruitful in seeking to understand how journalistic profession and professional power and authority operate.
