Nikki Usher, Assistant Professor at The George Washington University, told us about her work. She has recently finished a book called ‘Interactive Journalism’ (find info about the book behind this link). Usher’s current work will focus on post-industrial journalism in newsrooms, looking at the connection of material and digital production. She is asking whether journalism can be ever truly post-industrial.
At the ICA conference in May 2017, Usher will be presenting a paper about newspaper strikes in the US. She tells about some interesting findings from the study. Usher is also interested about the recent US elections and networks that journalists have.
The interview was filmed at the Nordic Data Journalism Conference 2017 in Odense, Denmark.
