This roundtable brings together leading scholars across the Americas to discuss how the arrival and presence of Covid-19 has impacted and presented challenges for journalists, journalism research and those who study the region and the subject. The goals of the roundtable are two-fold: to understand how the pandemic is impacting research and researchers, and also to seek pathways to building supportive networks across the region, given a host of new limitations. The roundtable will begin by scholars discussing the myriad of issues and challenges in the midst of a global pandemic. For example, Mariana De Maio will discuss her research in Paraguay, an understudied country in the region, and how the pandemic has impacted her ability to advance her study. Jessica Retis will explain how Covid-19 has impacted a research team studying journalism practice and precarity in Peru. Juan David Cárdenas will present on the situation in Colombia. Sallie Hughes will focus on the circumstances for journalism researchers in Mexico. Carlos Arcila will address the environment in Venezuela. And, Celeste González de Bustamante will discuss impacts and challenges for journalists working along and in border regions in Latin America. The discussion will then be opened up to the audience and panelists to discuss ways and approaches to overcome, resist, and create supportive scholarly communities despite the many obstacles that they face.

 David Blanco-Herrero (University of Salamanca) y Martin Oller Alonso (Università degli Studi di Milano Statale)

There is no doubt that technological developmenthas impacted and will continue to shape the way journalists find and reportinformation. Technology does not only increase variety and speed, but it alsocontributes to challenge geopolitical boundaries. Glenda Garcia Zumalacarreguiexplores how the government of Cuba has been adapting to the technologicalchanges by analyzing the webpages of local governments and inferring thegovernment’s political will to adapt. Arturo Matute Castro analyses the impactof independent Cuban digital media on the construction of the identity of Cubanimmigrants and their relation to the people in the island. Victor Quintanillaexplores how journalists in Bolivia employ technology to collect information ina highly polarized social context exposed to a global sanitary crisis andsuggests that while there is a continuity of collaborative practices utilizingemerging technologies, there is evidence suggesting a tension between sharinginformation and the ownership of exclusive information. Blanco-Herrero, OllerAlonso, and Calderón investigate the impact of technological development on theway journalists work across a number of countries in Ibero-America and how theyrelate to their audiences. Chile emerges as the country where technology hasbeen less influential and Brazil where it has been the most impactful. The worksuggests that the technical dexterity of journalist play a significant roleexplaining both their capacity to find information and to relate to theiraudiences.
