Data Journalism and the Regeneration of News traces the emergence and flourishing of data journalism through a scholarly lens. It presents evidence of how data journalists are mobilizing discursive, technological and, in well-resourced newsrooms, financial assets, to advance maintenance and regeneration in journalism.
The authors base their analysis on three years of in-depth field research in Canada, an example of a mature media system facing decline in for-profit media. They argue that, as a more "liquid’ form of journalism, data journalism has been able to evolve and adapt in the digitized world of the 21st century. Date journalism has become a site where journalism, programming and coding combine. It has enabled the growth of new networks, tools and technologies, as well as emergent norms, methods and epistemologies such as collaboration and computational thinking.
Data Journalism and the Regeneration of News demonsrates how the multiple crises in journalism have created apertures in long-standing norms and practices for data journalists to advance alternative and novel ways of doing and knowing. The book will introduce an important new dimension to the study of digital journalism for researchers, students and educators.
