AlterPublics visited by Professor Kristoffer Holt
Kristoffer Holt, professor of media and communication at Linnæus University, is visiting the AlterPublics project this week on a research stay at Roskilde University.
Holt has travelled from the university in Kalmar, Sweden, to exchange views on how to define and classify alternative media as well as to provide inputs on fresh data – mainly Swedish – from the AlterPublics research project. He also visited the JourDem research group where he among other things presented some of his previous and current work.
It is no coincidence that the Swedish professor is the first scholar to be invited to visit the AlterPublics project as he is considered by many to be one of the main scholars in the field of alternative media.
- Kristoffer's work is highly relevant to our project, and he has invaluable knowledge of the Swedish alternative news media ecology. It is definitely a pleasure to able to discuss everything from empirical data to conceptual definitions with him, PI Eva Mayerhöffer says.
Kristoffer Holt will stay at Roskilde University until Friday, April 8, and then return to Linnæus University where he is working on a new project on young citizens and the quality of news.
