Intermediality, Multimodality and News (IMS News)

This research cluster explores the role of professional journalism and news in a digitized society asking how the flexible combination of modes and communication in a hybrid media environment affects the production, perception and dissemination of news.

Researchers in this cluster explore for instance how young citizens perceive news, the transmedial workflow strategies in the newsroom, informative and misinformative narrative patterns in journalism, the body language in television news presentation and music in political journalism.
