History of Journalism

During the last years, this research line has been developing its activity in two different thematic areas. On one side, on two R&D&I projects of the Spanish Research Framework (Plan Nacional) about the role of the Press during the Spanish Transition to Democracy, "International News about Spain: the Spanish Transition (1975-1978). Media Coverage and Perception of the Spanish Foreign Policy in the International Press" —financed by the Ministry of Science and Innovation (ref. CSO2009 - 09655)—, and "The Role of the Daily Press in the Democratic Transition. Media Coverage and Political Behaviour of Newspapers and Journalists" —subsidized by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (ref. CSO2012 - 36774)—. These two projects will be followed by a third and final one that will be presented to the next official call for project proposals.

On the other hand, we are working on a large research project of the Institute for Catalan Estudies (IEC) about the Press published in the catalan language, being current stage, "Historic Catalog of the Press in Catalan II. The renewal of Journalism, 1899-1923", the second out of the three planned historical periods of study. Due to the specific nature of this work, we are collaborating with a number of researchers from other Catalan and Spanish universities. At the same time, this project is believed to offer a significant international scope, now in the process of being explored and developed.
