I’am happy to share with you the publication of my new article “Contextual analysis in comparative studies of intermediate journalistic cultures around the world. The Organic Multilevel Model (OMM)” in Alcance Journal:
The last decade has seen the consolidation of the comparative studies of journalistic culture beyond one single country or western journalism studies. Due to this global tendency, researchers in this field are looking for new tools and strategies to study the particular situation that journalists encounter within their journalistic cultures in each country or region around the world. To analyze the surroundings or conditions in which journalists live and work, this article presents the multilevel models as ideal methods of analysis of the contextual influences in journalism for comparative studies. These models contrast the points of view of journalists within their journalistic cultures based on their personal and professional situations within the newsrooms and the contextual influences from their media and the most important systems – economic, political, social, cultural, educational, media, etc. – and the technology of their countries. Specifically, this work presents the Organic Multilevel Model (OMM), based on the concept of organic analysis and supported by the ideas of dynamism, change and heterogeneity, as ideal model to define the journalism within the so-called intermediate journalistic cultures.
