This journalism studies unit will examine the imperatives of global news flows, international news
gathering and story dissemination. The unit will explore the subject from a theoretical and practical
perspective and will engage with the breakdown of roles between the journalist, media organisations
and the interactive audience. This unit will first look at aspects of the history of international
newsgathering and will then chart the evolution of practice and the growing importance of social
media and citizen journalism.
