Journalism futures

I’ve published two pieces this fall that take up questions of the future of journalism in Canada, both written since the latest announcement of another round of Postmedia buyouts and Rogers Communications Inc.’s decision to scale back its magazine printing schedules.

My review of Vivian Smith’s (2015) book, Outsiders Still: Why Women Journalists Love–And Leave–Their Newspaper Careers, appears in the latest issue of the Canadian Journal of Communication.

My story about Taproot Edmonton, a new project to enliven local journalism in Edmonton, appears in J-Source.

Both of these pieces raise questions about what journalists’ working lives will look like in the future.
