The Routledge Companion to American Journalism History revisits media history across forms, formats, and multiple fault lines, including gender, ethnicity, race, and citizenship status. Original contributions highlight areas of journalism history in desperate need of further treatment, with a special focus on diversity, equity, and accountability. Sections cover the early origins and development of journalism in the United States, pivotal moments and personalities in various strands of journalism, underrepresented groups and formats in journalism history, and key issues in “doing” journalism history. Authors aim to fill in the gaps left by traditional historical narratives by examining overlooked subjects, such as labor reporting, and overdue theoretical perspectives, such as intersectionality. Collectively, the voices in this book offer a more inclusive paradigm for the field. Written by a range of recognized journalism scholars, both well-established and emerging, this collection offers a thought-provoking starting point for researchers and advanced students seeking a critical understanding of American journalism history as conceived in the current era.
