Dr Sherine Conyers


I am a former journalist, digital editor and newspaper editor with more than a decade of experience in both Australian and UK newsrooms. In 2019, I conducted ethnography in digital newsrooms along the east coast of Australia, covering networked organizations across a range of public and commercial media with legacies in broadcast and print. My research explores the types and forms of digital metrics engaged by news organizations and the implications of these metric processes for content outputs, managment control, democratic function and digital informational health.
