Comparing News Work to Care Work: A Different Lens on Journalistic Labour

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper advances two fairly recent discourses in media and communication studies. First, many scholars are now addressing a historic blind spot in our field by researching labour, and more recently, labour resistance, both in the media and cultural industries and in service work more generally. Second, there is a recent turn to notions of flourishing, care, and well-being among communication scholars. This year’s conference theme “Communication and the Good Life” articulates this interest which goes beyond traditional conceptualizations of media ethics. However, both lines of research lack an in-depth engagement with working conditions and well-being among journalists. Interlacing both discourses while addressing their shortcomings, this paper compares news work to care work and the media sector to the health sector. This articulates unexpected structural similarities regarding worker motivation, interactivity, ethical underpinnings of practice, and policy attention - while cultivating a view of society that avoids media-centrism.
