The Journalism Studies Center, located in the Department of Communication at the University of Vienna, is concerned with the interdisciplinary study of journalism and its interaction with societal fields across different cultural contexts, employing qualitative and quantitative approaches. In doing so, we aspire to generate knowledge that is theoretically innovative and of relevance for society.

Key foci of reserach conducted at the Center include:

  • Transformations of journalism and journalism education against the background of political, economic, technological and cultural influences
  • (Re-)Conceptualizations of journalism
  • Journalism and Collective Memory
  • Reciprocal relationships between journalism and other societal fields
