NeFCA’s Journalism division provides a platform for Dutch and Flemish communication scholars working in the field of journalism. New developments in and challenges for the profession of journalism are the main research topics in the field. These developments and challenges may have a technical, economic or social character.

The division organizes yearly activities (workshops, colloquia) to promote discussion, networking and cooperation among senior and junior members. The Journalism Division also aims to promote knowledge exchange between scholars and professionals working in the field.

The steering committee of the Journalism division consists of five people: Annelore Deprez (UGent), Sarah Van Leuven (UGent), Bernadette Kester (EUR) and Pytrik Schafraad (UvA). Kenza Lamot (UA) is PhD representative.
