Nete Nørgaard Kristensen

Associate Professor

I have for several years been specialising in research on arts journalism, cultural journalism and cultural critique in the media, incl. the interplay of cultural journalists and their news sources from the cultural industries; media sociological perspectives on cultural journalists; and longitudinal studies of the transformation of cultural journalism in Danish newspapers. In 2014, I initiated a Nordic research network for scholars stuyding cultural journalism (funded by NOS-HS 2014-15). The network is still active and its activities include a compartive study of discourses on popular culture products such as quality TV-series and bestselleres in Nordic newspaper, which I received funding for from Arts Council Norway (2016-17). I am a member of the research group Media Systems and Journalism, and I am currently in charge of several projects on cultural journalism and cultural critique, among others the project "From Ivory Tower to Twitter: Rethinking the Cultural Critic in Contemporary Media Culture", funded by the Danish Research Council for Independent Research (2015-2019).
