Newsmaking on participatory sociotechnical foundations
Jana Declercq |
Center for Language and Cognition, University of Groningen
In this epilogue, we look back at the contributions to
this volume which have shown how some newsmakers embrace the idea of collaborating
while others are more cautious in reaching out. There seems to be, however,
simply no avoiding participation. We explore whether this means giving up,
or at least redistributing, control. In doing so, we also point to a lacuna
in this volume, as it is invariably on journalists and other traditional
newsmakers whom we focus, rather than those who fall outside traditional
professional categories. We examine how stable the relationships in
collaborative newsmaking really are and, zooming in on the ambivalent notion
of collusion, how the contemporary design of newsmaking both enables
positive participation and enforces unwanted forms of engagement. We
conclude by reflecting on how participation, engagement and collaboration
are impacting other fields of society. The chapter points to the need for critical
reflection on the limits of participation and to new routes
for further research.
