Monash University’s journalism researchers have been awarded all research grants and scholarly prizes offered by the Journalism Education and Research Association Australia (JERAA).
Journalism lecturer Dr Stephanie Brookes was recently announced the winner of the 2016 JERAA Journalism Research Grant and said she was thrilled to be the successful recipient.
“This year provides a unique opportunity to undertake a comparative study of political journalism, as we have a federal election taking place in Australia and a general election in the US,” Dr Brookes said.
“The award will make it possible for me to conduct a comparative study of the way that ‘legacy’ news organisations compete with emerging online providers of political information.
“I’m interested to see whether these organisations incorporate the new styles and technologies pioneered by other providers, or whether they innovate in campaign coverage.”
Dr Brookes said the grant would enable her to conduct scholarly research, write a practical report, and host a public seminar in the new Monash Media Lab to discuss these issues.
Monash journalism also congratulates Nicole Gooch, a PhD candidate supervised by Professor Chris Nash, who was awared the JERAA post graduate conference scholarship to present at the JERAA 2016 conference.
Congratulations also to Associate Professor Mia Lindgren, who is the current JERAA/ANZCA Anne Dunn Scholar.
