Hostwriter CEO Tabea Grzeszyk authored an article in the June 2019 issue of the Journal of Applied Journalism & Media Studies. The article, “Diversity matters! How cross-border journalism calls out media bias,” provides a thorough overview of the evolution of cross-border journalism and the importance of diversity in newsrooms.

From the abstract:

This article argues that the dominant tradition of journalism that places the reporter as a mere observer to events, power relations and global hierarchies is unfit as a working model for cross-border collaboration teams. By reversing the perspective of research, it investigates how the ‘neutral‘ position of journalism itself has been shaped by historical context, story-telling traditions, iconic imageries and naturalized assumptions that have influenced its view of the world. With the goal of initiating a knowledge transfer, this article explores key concepts from Cultural Studies and Postcolonial Theory to apply them to contemporary journalism practices.”
