Edited by Hayes Mawindi (University College Falmouth, UK) Mabweazara, Okoth Fred (Coventry University, UK) Mudhai, Jason (University of Lincoln, UK) Whittaker
Part of the Routledge Advances in Internationalizing Media Studies series
Very little is known about how African journalists are forging "new" ways to practise their profession on the web.
Against this backdrop, this volume provides contextually rooted discussions of trends, practices, and emerging cultures of web-based journalism(s) across the continent, offering a comprehensive research tool that can both stand the test of time as well as offer researchers (particularly those in the economically developed Global North) models for cross-cultural comparative research.
The essays here deploy either a wide range of evidence or adopt a case-study approach to engage with contemporary developments in African online journalism.
This book thus makes up for the gap in cross-cultural studies that seek to understand online journalism in all its complexities.
