The constitution of unemployment: Journalism as a technology of citizenship

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article uses a case study of the representation of unemployment in two stories produced by Channel 9’s A Current Affair (ACA) to suggest how an understanding of journalism as a ‘technology of citizenship’ might inform a practice of textual analysis. In doing so, it considers the particular implications both of this approach and this particular study for an historical understanding of journalism, and the relation between journalistic practices and the broader socio-political field in which they operate.
