Abstract

Chapter 2 explores the gender aspects of digital skills in journalism. There is a discussion of the gendered consequences of the increased value of digital skills in journalism. For example, what happens if media companies hire more people with a background in ICT, a field which is notorious for its gender imbalance both in education and professions? In order to gain a complete picture of gender dimensions, the book not only focuses on quantitative aspects but also asks more complex questions about how gender interacts with technology in journalism. The answers to these questions goes beyond merely describing gender divides, by offering insights into the underlying mechanisms that support them. Obstacles that are addressed here include the geek stereotype, the gendered evaluation of digital skills, the coding ceiling, and the gendered accumulation of digital skills. The chapter focuses on how female and male journalists experience and perceive these obstacles in their professional lives based on qualitative interviews with an international sample of journalism professionals (n = 37).

Abstract

What is Digital Journalism Studies? delves into the technologies, platforms, and audience relations that constitute digital journalism studies’ central objects of study, outlining its principal theories, the research methods being developed, its normative underpinnings, and possible futures for the academic field. The book argues that digital journalism studies is much more than the study of journalism produced, distributed, and consumed with the aid of digital technologies. Rather, the scholarly field of digital journalism studies is built on questions that disrupt much of what previously was taken for granted concerning media, journalism, and public spheres, asking questions like: What is a news organisation? To what degree has news become separated from journalism? What roles do platform companies and emerging technologies play in the production, distribution, and consumption of news and journalism? The book reviews the research into these questions and argues that digital journalism studies constitutes a cross-disciplinary field that does not focus on journalism solely from the traditions of journalism studies, but is open to research from and conversations with related fields. This is a timely overview of an increasingly prominent field of media studies that will be of particular interest to academics, researchers, and students of journalism and communication.
