Salle 711, 27 rue Grégoire de Tours, 75006 Paris
Sciences Po School of Journalism and médialab welcome Pablo J Boczkowski (Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University) on June 19th, 2019 (9am-11am), for a conférence entitled: "Devaluing the news: How people learn about current affairs in a world of information plenty".
"In this talk I will summarize the results of a study about how people experience and manage an information environment in which news is plenty, circulates rapidly, has been largely commoditized, and can hardly be avoided. Drawing upon 158 interviews conducted between March 2016 and December 2017 in four cities in Argentina, and a survey of 700 adults administered in Buenos Aires and its suburbs in October 2016, the analysis shows that people enact a series of consumption routines that have devalued the news report in their everyday lives."
