African Journalism Studies – from arts to sport and more


The latest issue of Ecquid Novi: African Journalism Studies, which I edit, has just been published. The issue covers topics such as arts journalism, post-conflict reporting in Sierra Leone, an exploration of African-language newspapers and representations of African athletes in the media. Feminist approaches in South African news media are explored, and a study of newspaper columnists’ framing of Kenyan politics in post-2007 election violence. The well-known journalism studies scholar Barbie Zelizer contributed an essay on ‘Tools for the Future of Journalism’.

Ecquid Novi is affiliated with the Journalism Research and Education Section of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), the Journalism Studies Division of the International Communication Association (ICA) and to the South African Communication Association (Sacomm). It is an accredited journal indexed on among others the Thomson Reuters ISI index.
