We’re very pleased to report that our research project has just been awarded funding of $270,756 to be spread across the next three years through the ARC Linkage project scheme.

To quote from the La Trobe University media release: “The project is a multifaceted analysis of the role of mass redundancies, forced career changes and the digital reinvention of Australian journalism at a time of industry restructure and technological change. This research will see academics and industry stakeholders join forces to explore how to best address questions about professional journalism’s experience of structural transformation and its capacity to adapt positively to change.”

Our research partners for this project are the ABC, the National Library of Australia, and the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance. More soon.
