This presentation by Mindy McAdams serves as an introduction to major themes and approaches to research about journalism work and journalism products in the 21st century. It centers on five chapters in the 2008 book "Global Journalism Research" (Loffelholz & Weaver, Eds.) and adds five examples of published journal articles to demonstrate the range of research topics in journalism studies today. It also touches briefly on the work of Peter Berglez (about "global journalism" as a news style). For more about Berglez and the practices of international news reporting, SEE ALSO http://www.slideshare.net/macloo/global-journalism/ (this presents a comparison of 3 differing concepts of "global journalism").
