Heikki Heikkilä, Dr. Soc

Department of Journalism and Mass Communication 
Utacas fellow 2005-2006

My research field is journalistic cultures and their relations to Europe and the European Union. My interest lies in Finnish news journalism in particular, but as a member of a European research project Adequate Information Management (www.aim-project.net) I will be able to put the Finnish case into a larger context of ten other European journalistic cultures.

Journalistic culture is in my view constituted in thoughts, practices and texts. In other words, what matters is what journalists think about their profession and its functions, how they go about doing their work and what is the outcome of their work. From this follows that my study is based on various methdologies ranging from ethnography to news analysis.
