This volume brings together current scholarly debates about how to bridge the gap between theory and practice in media and journalism research. Drawing on work from media scholars and media practitioners that focuses on how both sides can work together for the good of society, Towards a Praxis-based Media and Journalism Research is the first collection to examine how theory and practice can be combined for positive effect. The result will lay important groundwork for scholarship on this new and increasingly important idea in media and communication studies.
Review Quotes
European Journal of Communication
"The book seeks to address the apparent divide between those who study journalism and those who practice it. . . . it is refreshing to gain an insight into critical practitioner perspectives on the work of academics within a scholarly publication such as this. Likewise, greater prominence to media and journalism scholarship that does not meet the utilitarian demands of 'relevance' within the mainstream media would be another step forward in this conversation."
