About this book

This volume seeks to analyse the emerging wave of data journalism in the Global South. It does so by examining trends, developments and opportunities for data journalism in the aforementioned contexts. Whilst studies in this specific form of journalism are increasing in numbers and significance, there remains a dearth of literature on data journalism in less developed regions of the world. By demonstrating an interest in data journalism across countries including Chile, Argentina, the Philippines, South Africa and Iran, among others, this volume contributes to multifaceted transnational debates on journalism, and is a crucial reference text for anyone interested in data journalism in the ‘developing’ world. Drawing on a range of voices from different fields and nations, sharing empirical and theoretical experiences, the volume aims to initiate a global dialogue among journalism practitioners, researchers and students.

Reviews

“A much-needed global perspective on data journalism that shines a light on the role of political, cultural and economic contexts in the development of the field. With insights into data journalism practice, and a critical perspective on content, this is a refreshing and important addition to the literature.” (Paul Bradshaw, Birmingham City University, UK)

“This edited volume on data journalism in the Global South is an exciting, original and much-needed corrective to the field, which has largely focused on research in Western societies. It brings together researchers from four different regions integrating a range of journalism sites, methods and conceptual approaches. This book is a significant contribution to our understanding of global data journalism trends and a must-read.” (Alfred Hermida, University of British Columbia, Canada)
