CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

Assistant Professor Jan Lauren Boyles had a paper accepted to AEJMC’s Media Management, Economics and Entrepreneurship division: "Integrating Data Journalism into the Newsroom: Four Phases of Organizational Restructuring." She also served as research co-chair for AEJMC’s Newspaper and Online News Division.

Boyles was also invited this month to the Data Journalism Un-Conference in New York City. The sessions — sponsored by Google and the Knight Foundation — included 60 data journalism practitioners from elite global news publications and five academics. The gathering included "study tours" of data newsrooms, including The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

At AEJMC this summer, Boyles will be serving as a pre-conference speaker on algorithmic transparency, on a panel on business models/data journalism and as a discussant for data journalism in American newspapers.

In teaching, Boyles has worked this month with the Extended Learning office to update her summer course on technology and social change. In service, Boyles worked with Greenlee faculty for the successful visit of Steve Doig, Knight Professor of Journalism at Arizona State. This month, she is also reviewing a manuscript for Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly and is serving as a jurist for AEJMC’s Kettering Award for Journalism, Citizenship and Democracy.
