The Centre for Journalism and Communication Research
The Centre for Journalism and Communication Research was launched in 2009. It brings together two research groups – the Journalism Research Group and the Narrative Research Group – from within the Media School at Bournemouth University.
Researchers affiliated to the Centre represent a diverse array of interests and expertise, while sharing a commitment to engage in real-world issues of pressing significance.
Several collaborative projects are underway – both internally and externally – which involve colleagues and PhD students in the pursuit of topics that effectively blend academic and professional concerns to advantage.
The Centre provides an organisational structure for these activities, including the preparation of funding bids, publications, seminars, workshops, and conferences.
It also aims to ensure the future development of research proceeds in a strategically informed way, providing support for individual researchers and encouraging new initiatives.
