Research interests

  • Journalism and Media Industry Innovation

Journalism and news-based media industries are changing in ways that have been described as a crisis. There are two major strands to this research: 1. Looking beyond the hype and myopic short term discourses of 'innovation' and 'journalism futures' and 2. Capturing a sense of the experience for recent graduates working with skilled journalists as they develop news practices and new professional norms. 

  • Discourse and Media Events

Developing hybrid research methodologies that bridge the divide between quantitative and qualitative digital research methods. Part of this process involves rethinking 'media events' in terms of communication technology, discourse and post-structuralist philosophies of the 'event' (Deleuze, Foucault).

  • Media and Affect (Enthusiasm)

The role of specialist media in 'scenes' and the relation between media and enthusiasm (affect). His current interest is researching cycling culture and in particular the role of organised events as vehicles for cultural change. Fuller's PhD research focused on modified-car culture and understanding the role of magazines and enthusiast events for structuring the scene.
