Re-centring Community, Care, and Curiosity in a Decentred Journalism Studies: A Response to Journalism Studies for Realists

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/Letter to the editorAcademic

Abstract

In this response to the article by Matt Carlson and Chris Peters, we consider the challenge that the authors deem key for journalism studies and their answer to this challenge: “realist journalism studies.” We explore what the authors mean by decentring journalism studies, by “realism,” and the reason for wanting to keep journalism studies. We conclude by exploring what we consider the main challenge for journalism studies: to untangle what journalism does in society and how it can serve people and communities better, and what methodologies and theories we would need to do so from a place of curiosity, not opposition.
