In this current period of uncertainty and introspection in the media, New Journalisms not only focuses on new challenges facing journalism, but also seeks to capture a wide range of new practices that are being employed across a diversity of media.

This edited collection explores how these new practices can lead to a reimagining of journalism in terms of practice, theory, and pedagogy, bringing together high-profile academics, emerging researchers, and well-known journalism practitioners. The book’s opening chapters assess the challenges of loss of trust and connectivity, shifting professional identity, and the demise of local journalism. A section on new practices evaluates algorithms, online participatory news websites, and verification. Finally, the collection explores whether new pedagogies offer potential routes to new journalisms.

Representing a timely intervention in the debate and providing sustainable impact through its forward-looking focus, New Journalisms is essential reading for students of journalism and media studies.
