CFP: Covering Canadian crimes

Book: Covering Canadian crimes: What journalists should know and the public should question
Editors: Romayne Smith Fullerton and Chris Richardson
Submission deadline for proposals: April 15, 2011

Description: »The links between journalism and crime run deep.

Accelerating communication technologies, new media policies, corporate mergers, and renewed calls for law-and-order in the political sphere are just some of the issues facing journalism today. ... Themes will fall under the broad categories of: 1) the courts and legal system; 2) cultural contexts of crime news; 3) journalism in practice; and 4) ethical codes and moral panics.«
