'minding the gap': reflections on media practice and theory

Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford
12 May 2007 09:30-18:00

Keynote speaker is Professor Brian Winston, University of Lincoln.

There is an unmistakable gap between intellectual models of mass media institutions and practices, and the ways that practitioners experience the media. All too often, media theorists lack personal experiences of their topics of study, and university departments separate theory and practice in their internal organisation. This training day – for postgraduate research students and researchers in the first five years of an academic career – will explore the relationship between media theories and mass media practices across three thematic workshops.

Workshop 1: Media Practice as Methods of Research and Presentation

Workshop 2: Theoretical Models in Mass Media Practice

Workshop 3: Double vocations: Mass Media Practice and Theory
