Craig In their introduction to this second edition of The Handbook of Journalism Studies, editors Karin Wahl-Jorgensen and Thomas Hanitzsch aptly note that it is not merely an update of the first edition but that it reflects a comprehensive effort to reconstruct journalism studies as a maturing discipline challenged to engage with the slippery, uncertain, and perilous realities of 21st century journalism in all its global diversity. Accordingly, all but 9 of the 34 chapters assembled for this edition are entirely new, all contributed by internationally prominent scholars. The Handbook is organized in six parts, the first of which presents the editors’ introduction along with overview chapters on journalism history, theory, and education. The remaining parts are concerned with news production, news content, journalism and society, journalism and culture, and journalism studies in a global context. Each chapter explains key concepts, reviews historical and current trends in the literature, and sets the agenda for future research on its topic. For me, several themes stand out across the volume. One, of course, is the ongoing digital revolution that is profoundly transforming every aspect of journalistic practice, professional identity, and institutional structure. The rise of social media has altered the media ecology in which journalism functions, including processes that can make it uncertain who counts as a journalist, encourage public participation, or facilitate the spread of “fake news.” Computational journalism has expanded the potential for data-based reporting while automated, “robot” newswriting poses new ethical questions. A second theme is to question the tight normative coupling of journalism with liberal democracy, not only because it distracts scholarship from culturally important forms of nonpolitical news but also because it perpetuates a Western bias that distorts our understanding of journalism as it is practiced in different political systems around the globe. The challenges to journalism posed by resurgent authoritarianism and right-wing populism are mentioned in several chapters, including a fascinating analysis of “authoritarian resilience”—the sophisticated techniques of media control now being used by authoritarian governments (Chapter 34). Overlapping the concern with Western bias in the identification of journalism with liberal democracy is a third theme, internationalization, which resonates through the broader discipline of communication as well as journalism studies. This Handbook advances the project of globalizing journalism studies beyond the Western and specifically Anglo-American perspectives that have traditionally dominated the field. The editors characterize journalism studies as a maturing discipline that, as tends to happen in lively research areas, is becoming increasingly diverse and fragmented. Promising new turns toward journalism as discourse and cultural practice and new approaches to audience research, ix x Series Editor’s Foreword among other trends, enrich journalism studies while making it harder to maintain a coherent sense of the field. If the first edition of The Handbook of Journalism Studies played an important role in coalescing the field, as I believe it did, the second edition can serve to reimagine and revitalize the field at a moment of radical transformation. As such, this edition of the Handbook, like its predecessor, will be an essential resource for professional scholars and advanced students of journalism around the world.
