Tow Center Announces Project to Study Future of Journalism

By: Taylor Owen | Tow Center for Digital Journalism

Over the past few months we have been putting together an exciting new program of research, the Tow/Knight Projects, marking a first for us at the Tow Center, the Columbia Journalism School, and the changing field of journalism. With generous funding from both The Tow Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, we set out to attract proposals from those who care about the rapid evolution in digital journalism, whether are academic researchers or journalists.

The mandate of the Tow/Knight research program is to study three themes that we think are central to the future of journalism: how do you measure the impact of journalism in a digital media environment; what does it meant to be ‘transparent,’ for both media and those the media hold to account; and how can data be better understood and incorporated into the practice of journalism?
