Berlin journalism studies after the student movement
What became of the potential of socio-critical perspectives that had emerged in West Berlin journalism studies with the student movement after ›1968‹? How did teaching, research and academic self-government change? What part did politics, the university and the media system, as well as individual protagonists and organized groups, play at the beginning and at the end of a roughly twenty-year phase that has distinguished the development of the discipline in Berlin from other locations? The project approaches these questions through biographical interviews and essays on the history of the field. It is about Marx and Meinhof, press concentration research and camp struggles, the ›Berlin Model‹ and bloc appointment, the ›Radicals Decree‹ and scarcity of premises.
