Journalism from the peripheries. From the Swiss-Italian media system to other local dimensions. ECREA 2018 special panel report
Inspired by the ECREA 2018 theme “Centres and Peripheries” and the conference setting in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland, the panel “Journalism from the peripheries. From the Swiss-Italian media system to other local dimensions” explored how changing dynamics in the contemporary news environment affect local news provision in less-examined – or peripheral – geographic areas. Joining moderator Philip Di Salvo, post-doctoral researcher at Università della Svizzera italiana’s Institute of Media and Journalism, panelists discussed forces shaping how local media at the peripheries of contemporary journalism maximize their distinctive positions to produce and distribute news that effectively represents and serves their communities.
