Journalism Lab ΙΧ: Aspects of the Internet – Critical perspectives [410307]

Pantelis Vatikiotis: 


In terms of the Internet privatization and commercialization, the emergence of new forms of collaborative culture and content production platforms, the new possibilities of managing and storing big data, and the regulating practices of the digital field, the Lab aims to examine and analyse:


  • the infomediation model (news aggregators, search engines)
  • data journalism and data presentation/visualization
  • mechanisms of collecting/exploiting information, controlling/filtering content, and the working conditions (insecurity, surveillance) in digital platforms
  • the production, dissemination of fake news, and hate speech (in the service of nationalism, racism, and religious fanaticism) on the Internet
  • alternative online news outlets and forms of collective action
  • new digital practices in the field of the market (electronic currency, short terms rental platforms) and in the field of governance (cyber warfare, counterterrorism)

During the semester, students undertake (individually and/or in groups) weekly reports on the course blog, oral presentations, a series of research papers (on case studies) and manage the electronic journal of the course.
