Constructive news articles as an emerging genre

Project: Research


SPRINT Undergraduate (Year 2) Internship (Intern: Georgina Tanner), Lancaster University, £1,925.74

Recent years have seen the rise of constructive journalism described as news about significant societal issues which report problems while also showing possible solutions. As journalism training programmes are increasingly looking to teach news writers the principles of constructive journalism, there is lack of research and resources on the language and structure of constructive news. This study will start to identify the recurrent language and structure features of constructive news articles by analysing news articles published by two early adopters of constructive journalism in the UK.
