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. Professor Stig Hjarvard served 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.

For my PhD, I researched whether/how news workers use the affordances of news websites.

The PhD project 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.

Three journal articles, one book chapter, and one Danish-language book have come directly from the dissertation:
