Book: ‘Future Journalism: Where we are and where we’re going’ (2017) Routledge
Future Journalism investigates where journalism has come from, where it is now and where it might be going, through a range of case studies on organisations pushing the traditional boundaries of journalism, including Vice, Buzzfeed, Bellingcat, The Washington Post, the Guardian, Circa and Narrative Science.
“This book deals with the most important issues facing journalism. It draws on the author’s extensive industry experience, original interviews with key players and fascinating case studies. She does so from the perspective of a journalist who cares deeply about the profession and manages to keep an upbeat tone while delivering some sobering analyses.” – Helen Sissons, Senior Lecturer in Journalism, Auckland University of Technology, Australia.
“Sue Greenwood has written a fantastically inspiring book. Future Journalism is thoroughly researched and beautifully written. Greenwood not only recounts engagingly the story of how modern journalism reacted to the digital disruption, she also points to where journalism can and might go from here. The book offers a brilliant wealth of theoretical reflection, case studies, and practical exercises that will be most useful for both journalism students and teachers.” – Imke Henkel, Senior Lecturer, School of English and Journalism, University of Lincoln, UK.
