Surviving the Transition to Digital First: News Apps in Asian Mobile Internets

As part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project into the mobile Internet, the research presented in this talk assumes the enduring importance of media diversity, in particular news diversity, as a policy priority in a convergent media era. The purpose of the news diversity research component of this ARC project is to investigate the implications of mobile news content provision, including for the development of media diversity policies. These Asian news case studies (in Hong Kong, South Korea, the PRC and Japan) explore the dynamic relations between old and new media industries in these transformations. The research draws on industry interviews with key personnel (in senior editorial, IT and management roles) in selected news media organisations conducted in 2013 and 2014. In broad terms the research takes a political economy approach to industry change and draws on the rubrics of media convergence to explore cross-media/cross-platform evolution.

Date: Friday 19th September, 2014
Time: 15:00-16:30
Location: S226Seminar Room, Department of Media and Communications, University of Sydney, John Woolley Building (A20) level 2, entry off Manning Road.
