Description & Coverage
Description:

As audiences are provided opportunities to experience the news through new technological advancements in the field, the very nature of journalism and its conventions will likely be challenged. This book offers multiple perspectives on the future of journalism by analyzing trends in technology and demographic shifts in audience composition through the next century. The book draws upon recent research and speculations by top technological firms as well as leading science fiction writers to provide a compelling portrait of how journalism may operate in next 20 to 40 years and beyond. The editors offer a groundbreaking view into the future of news consumption and how it will impact newsgathering and reception across the world. The very nature of journalism will likely be received and interpreted within unique communities through innovative and inclusive ways. This book explores the challenges ahead for journalists and media producers in the near and distant futures. Moreover, as in-world journalists have sought to inform and engage unique communities within the context of their worlds, real and virtual, issues relevant to the mainstream have been played out in virtual culture. This book offers a first glance into a mediated future from a journalistic lens.
