|My research focuses on the evolution of journalistic work routines from 1875 to the present day. It seeks answers to three questions: How do various social forces and institutions shape these routines over time? How do the resulting mass messages, in turn, shape our society and our perception of the social world? Who, at any one time, is included and excluded in this constructed reality? My work as a news professional during a seventeen-year period before I entered the academy has informed this research agenda. The results of my research have been published in a variety of journals including American Journalism, Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media, Journalism History, Science Communication, Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, and Critical Studies in Media Communication.
