JSC: Journalism Studies Center

The Journalism Studies Center, located in the Department of Communication, is a research group concerned with the interdisciplinary study of journalism and its interaction with societal fields across different cultural contexts, employing qualitative and quantitative approaches.

Key foci of research conducted at the Center include:

  • Transformations of journalism and journalism education against the background of political, economic, technological and cultural influences
  • (Re-)Conceptualizations of journalism
