1. Blanchett Neheli, Nicole. Redefining journalism : convergence in the public sphere .

Degree: 2012, Royal Roads University

In this paper I explore how participatory journalism is changing organizational structure and production practices at the publicly funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto (CBC). Using practical action research I examine two sites of study that offer unique strategies on incorporating everyday citizens into the news production process: the use of citizen bloggers to supplement CBC’s coverage of the G20 summit in Toronto shows how diversifying storytelling improves the overall quality of news content; the mandate of Connect with Mark Kelly to democratize daily news by using ordinary people as sources and breaking traditional rules of production reveals a survival strategy for daily news shows. Through the lens of media logic, using the theories of convergence culture and the public sphere, I develop strategies to involve more citizens in the newsmaking process, thus invigorating public discourse and subverting news production that is designed to entertain instead of inform. Advisors/Committee Members: Black, David (advisor), Real, Michael (advisor), McKean, Sandy (advisor), Walinga, Jennifer (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: participatory journalism; media logic; public sphere; convergence culture
