Spaces, Concepts, and Actors: Visualizing the Integration of Digital Technologies in a Broadcast Newsroom

Thu, May 25, 19:30 to 21:30, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Floor: 2, Indigo Ballroom B


Since the 1990s, radio, television and print news media outlets around the world have integrated different digital technologies such as the World Wide Web and the mobile phone into their work routines and practice. This data visualization assesses the resulting spatial, conceptual and role disruptions that have taken place in a for-profit radio station’s newsroom following the integration of these technologies in newswork. The visualization is part of a larger doctoral research project that uses actor-network theory to interrogate the varied outcomes of that integration.
