Journalism culture in transformative times: A study of Australian journalists in a changing media environment

Based on the first representative survey of Australian journalists in 20 years, this presentation will provide a snapshot of Australian journalism culture during tumultuous times. Journalism here, as in most Western societies, is undergoing an intensive period of transformation. Key social, technological and economic developments have affected the way news is produced and consumed, arguably leading to changes in journalistic cultures. Economic considerations have led to newsrooms becoming smaller, while often producing more news, on more platforms. Increased competition for audiences and advertisers is influencing journalistic decision-making, and – according to critics – a decrease in the quality of news. New media outlets, as well as so-called citizen journalists are further challenging journalists’ status as society’s authorised storytellers. In this seminar Folker Hanusch will demonstrate and discuss some of the significant changes in the journalistic workforce, and provide an overview of journalists’ professional and ethical concerns, ideas of job satisfaction, and perceptions of the changes that have occurred in the industry.
