New (and old) Trends in Journalism Research
In this paper, I look back to the vast area of communication sciences, that ﬁ rst arrived in the university sphere by means of journalism subjects. In reality, one of the ﬁ rst academic magazines in the area of communication sciences was a magazine concerning journalism. During the 1940´s and 1950´s, journalism research was at the center of the renowned studies by Lazarsfeld. In the years that follow, Journalism study´s dependence on sociological inquiries and content analysis was left behind in the explosion of studies that took place in the 1960´s and 70`s. In the more recent years, the explosion of studies of Journalism was marked by the recourse to a multiplicity of new methodologies (such as, for example, the ethno-methodological approach, discursive analysis, focus groups), by the emergence and growing inﬂ uence of television, by the interest relating to journalism´s ideological role, as well as by the appearance of new paradigms for understanding the news.
