Nordicom Review: Special Issue 2014
The 2013 NordMedia conference in Oslo marked the 40 years that had passed since the very first Nordic media conference. To acknowledge this 40-years anniversary, it made sense to have a conference theme that dealt with a major and important topic: Defending Democracy. Nordic and Global Diversities in Media and Journalism, focusing on the relationship between journalism, other media practices and democracy.
This special issue of Nordicom Review and Nordicom Information, edited by Harald Hornmoen & Kristin Skare Orgeret, contains the keynote speeches of Natalie Fenton, Stephen Ward and Ib Bondebjerg. A number of the conference papers have been revised and edited to become articles. Together, the articles presented should give the reader an idea of the breadth and depth of current Nordic scholarship in the area.
