My study titled "Making Meaning of Media Development Today" is now available in the International Journal of Communication. Here is the abstract:
This article aims to fill a gap in the academic literature on how employees at a media development intermediary construct meaning of their work. Based on in-depth interviews with 18 employees of Internews, this research shows that employees believe the organization has “evolved” from the past to include the entire “information ecosystem” today. Themes that emerged include a focus on information as a solution, an emphasis on local communities, the desire to give voice to marginalized communities, and a practice of listening. Interviewees strictly adhered to official narratives of their work and to contemporary development orthodoxy, perhaps because of group think and participant bias. Despite these narratives, we have to consider the ulterior motives of media development as a neocolonial project. Although some of the results may seem obvious, there is merit in documenting these findings to demystify media development work today.

Happy to celebrate the publication of the International Encyclopedia of Journalism Studies at the ICA conference in Washington, D.C., yesterday with co-editor Tim Vos and co-associate editors Annika Sehl and Dimitra Dimitrakopoulou. The encyclopedia includes more than 250 entries in three volumes. I enjoyed working with about 40 authors on their entries over the past few years.
