My name is Javier Díaz Noci. Currently teaching at the Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona. Previously, I have been professor at the University of the Basque Country (Bilbao), and I have been visiting scholar at the universities of Oxford (1998-1999) and Federal of Bahia, Brazil (2005 and 2008). I coordinate, with professor Marcos Palacios, from the Group of Research on Online Journalism (Grupo de Jornalismo Online, GJOL) of the University Federal of Bahia (UFBA) a research network Brazil-Spain that is conducting a comparative study of 14 online daily journals.
My main research interest is hypertext and narratology of online news, but I do work in some other things; being PhD in History and MLL in Law, I am very interested in both history of journalism (especially online journalism history -yes, it is possible- and, well, the history of the very first journalism and gazettes of the 16th century) and in authors’ rights and intellectual property in online journalism. If interested, you can find some articles in my own webpage.
Why beginning this weblog and why this name (CyberJournalism)? I try to explain it in the next post.
