Professor Stuart Allan from Cardiff University in the UK is one of the leading scholars in contemporary journalism studies. He has made a significant contribution to the development of this research field, having authored or edited seventeen books to date (many of which have been translated into multiple languages), as well as a wide range of journal articles and book chapters. He is a co-founder of the peer-reviewed journal Journalism Education, and serves on the editorial board of ten journals, including Digital Journalism, Journalism: Theory, Practice and Criticism, and New Media & Society. Although he is a man of many interests, Allan’s personal scholarship in journalism studies revolves around four themes: 1) journalism and democracy, where his attention has focused on the evolving role of the journalist in public life (Allan, 2010, 2012; Carter, Branston, and Allan, 1998; Fowler-Watt and Allan, 2013); 2) online news, with a particular interest in citizen journalism and what he terms citizen witnessing (Allan, 2006, 2013; Thorsen and Allan, 2014); 3) the changing nature of war, conflict and crisis reporting (Allan and Zelizer, 2004; Matheson and Allan, 2009; Zelizer and Allan, 2013); and 4) science journalism, with a special interest in how it is evolving in digital contexts (Allan, Adam and Carter, 2000; Allan, 2002; Anderson, Petersen, Wilkinson and Allan, 2009). Further research interests include journalism and human rights, media history, photojournalism, and young people’s civic engagement with digital media.
