News on the Web (2010-2013)

I did my PhD at the Department for Media, Cognition, and Communication at the University of Copenhagen from February, 2010, through January, 2013, with Professor Stig Hjarvard as my supervisor. I publicly defended the PhD dissertation “News on the Web: instantaneity, multimodality, interactivity, and hypertextuality on Danish news websites” on May 3, 2013.

The project was an examination of whether/how news workers use the affordances of news websites.

It was financed by a PhD grant from The Danish Council for Independent Research | Humanities and received additional funding from The Oticon Foundation (now: the William Demant Foundation), the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication (New York University Steinhardt), the Department of Media, Cognition, and Communication (University of Copenhagen), The Danish National Research School for Media, Communication, and Journalism (FMKJ; now closed), and Dagspressens Fond.

The dissertation has spawned three journal articles, one book chapter, and one Danish-language book:
