Chapter 1Painting the postfoundational picture
Participation, engagement and collaboration as a new foundation for
Jana Declercq |
Center for Language and Cognition, University of Groningen
This introductory chapter lays the ontological and
epistemological groundwork for this book, by providing a review
of its key themes and concepts, and outlining the book’s theoretical and
methodological position. More specifically, the book’s topic is introduced
based on a number of data points from the contributing chapters. These point
to the ubiquity of participation, engagement and collaboration, but also to
the tension they potentially create, including in the context of newsmaking. To
understand the key concepts in this central argument, two bodies of
literature are discussed. We first delineate
how we understand newsmaking, and focus on a number of recent changes in
this domain that are relevant for our central argument, such as that
newsmaking is increasingly engaging with a number of communities and
professional stakeholders, and that user-generated content and audience
feedback have become central. Second, the literature on participation,
engagement and collaboration is reviewed, exploring how predominant these
concepts have become in many realms of life, and how they are often related
to democratic ideals. Subsequently, we argue for the relevance of a
postfoundational perspective, and for the value of fieldwork approaches.
