About the Centre
The Centre was formed in Autumn 2009 to provide a forum for interdisciplinary research on journalism and history. We aim to use seminars, research projects and publishing ventures to set up dialogues about using journalism both as a source for understanding the past, and for clarifying ideas about the public sphere, language and discourse. We are particularly interested in developing robust methodologies for exploiting digital archives of journalism content.
- To be at the forefront of interdisciplinary research into the journalism of the past and to provide a focal point for scholarly debates in this field.
- To set up dialogues about using journalism both as a source for understanding the past, and for clarifying ideas about the public sphere, language and discourse.
