Articles on new media

October 20, 2008

Tripodos, journal published by the Ramom Llull University of Barcelona, has published its last issue on “Windows for Information: New trends in Journalism”, coordinated by professors Pere Masip and Josep Lluís Micó.  One of the articles, Jane Singer’s “The Journalist in the Network: A Shifting Rationale for the Gatekeeping Role and the Objectivity Norm“, is written in English.

Some others are written in Spanish or Catalan. Most of them deal with convergence: for example, Ramon Salaverria and José Alberto García Avilés’ “La convergencia tecnológica en los medios de comunicación: retos para el periodismo” [“Technological convergence in the media: challenges for journalism”], as a result of ongoing project on convergence in Spain, and “Confluencia d’informatius a la Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals” [“News confluence within the Catalan Corporation of Audiovisual Media”], by Jaume Masdéu, director of Information Channels of the public radio and television of Catalonia.

Other articles are on mobile communication (Juan Miguel Aguado and Inmaculada J. Martínez’s text) or on the use of multimedia resources in the Spanish media (Pere Masip and Josep Lluís Micó’s article).
