Research areas

Cross-media consumption of news. The project started as part of the project "Newspapers and journalism in transition: The printed press as a cultural and political resource" 2007-2010 - a research project financed by the Danish Research Council for the Humanities http://aviser.mef.ku.dk/ The project undertakes national online surveys of cross-media news consumption (2008 and 2011), as well as qualitative studies of the news media as resources in everyday life. Since 2012 the project has been the Danish member of the annual Reuters Institute Digital News Survey, from which it has published annual national report about the Danish landscape of news consumption.

The Encyclopedia of Media and Communication Research. Associate editor. The Encyclopedia, first published 2009 (in Danish) by Samfundslitteratur, Copenhagen (500 pages), published a revised print edition in 2013. The book has made the full transition to online publication: medieogkommunikationsleksikon.dk. The book, which is the first of its kind, carries entries about theories, concepts, methods, prominent scholars and schools and a wide range of media and communication topics. The editorial team of three associate editors manages the creative process of inspiring 9 topic editors, 2 Scandinavian editors (Norway and Sweeden) and several hundred authors, with associate professor Søren Kolstrup, Aarhus University, as editor-in-chief.

DREAM - Learning 2.0: Digital literacies and innovation 2009-2015. It is the overall objective of the project to galvanise innovative learning processes in order to sustain a diverse development of knowledge societies. This objective will be realised through systematic, interdisciplinary studies of young people’s digital literacies as they unfold in the semi-formal learning sites of Danish science centres and museums, particularly through the use of so-called web 2.0 technologies. http://www.dream.dk/#/172495/
