It focuses on mobile journalism using smart phones to film and edit. This module immerses participants in the latest developments around social media reporting and campaigning.

This is a participatory module which mixes up-to-the-minute case studies with a hands-on exploration of the tools and concepts. Students will become familiar with the affordances of digitally enabled crowdsourcing and participation as well as social media reporting, UGC verification, forensics and analysis.

Specific topics include the legal problematising of journalism, defamation law and contempt issues, debates in media ethics, state security and secrecy, professional codes and practices, privacy, human rights and international law, and international comparisons.

A large amount of data is available in electronic resources, both offline and online. This module gives a broad introduction to techniques for gathering data from electronic sources, such as databases and the internet. It covers both fundamental ideas and the use of some of the most important currently available tools.

The course also presents tools and ideas for more effectively using the internet to communicate, visualise and generate news stories. You are required to undertake and pass every element of the programme. Download the programme specification for the intake.

I also spent several weeks working on EastLondonLines , the local news website, including running the General Election coverage. This allowed me to practise my news writing and editing skills as well as use data to analyse the local results.

I was attracted to the programme because it is run with the Department of Computing , so I knew the technical side would be grounded in real computer science. This is not a journalism programme with a bit of techie stuff just bolted on! I was encouraged to attend events and pursue internship opportunities that opened a lot of doors for me.

When I looked at the courses on the programme, it struck me that it was as if the person who combined the course content was able to read my mind. The syllabus was practical, comprehensive and combined almost everything I wanted to learn to do.

The course made my wishes come true. Things I previously thought were impossible now seem very easy to achieve with the arsenal of digital tools the course introduced me to. I think that the programme is for journalists who want to create the future of journalism and be 10 years ahead of the industry. It is for those who are not afraid of learning new things and combining unlikely tools and techniques from previously unconnected domains of science.

I found myself combining political science with machine learning with computational linguistics with journalism. The best thing about my course is it triggers you not only to expand your perspective theoretically, but also introduces you into some very specified and technical knowledge that you will need in the professional field.

Before attending Goldsmiths, I worked as a journalist. The scholarship is clearly one of the most substantial stepping stones in my career as a journalist. Having been involved in the industry for four years, I won two journalism awards and worked in a multiplatform environment throughout various world-class media companies such as National Geographic and The Jakarta Post.

In my spare time, I contribute stuff for several publications, such as Rolling Stone magazine and local music websites in Indonesia. Goldsmiths is like the funky-friendly uncle you never had. On this programme we interrupt theory with practice, and practice with theory — we aim to engage you, intellectually and critically, and with enthusiasm, in a cultural studies project that questions everything. We welcome proposals for research in any area connected with media, communications, digital media, cultural theory and practice.

April DeConnick has written for general readers a book presenting a radically different interpretation of the Gospel of Judas than seen so far. DeConnick presents the original project funded by National Geographic to assemble the jigsaw like pieces of the document, transcribe it and translate it for publication and interpretation by well-known biblical scholars as a rushed job that did not allow those involved to take the time needed to form well thought out interpretations and insights.

This new interpretation of the Gospel Deconnick presents makes sense of the Judas Gospel for the first time and helps teh general reader understand access and think their way through the Gospel. Following the initial work on the Gospel of Judas from the National Geographic team and the publishing of the Coptic transcription, other scholars have had a crack at translation and interpretation and some differing and contrary opinions are emerging.

A very different take has been offered by April DeConick in her recent book.. According to DeConick, while Judas does have greater understanding than the other apostles who are completely misguided , he is nonetheless a doomed and literally demonic figure. So while the text is still very much in opposition to apostolic Christianity indeed she views it as a parody of sorts , the figure of Judas is still to be seen as a bad guy, not the good guy put forth by the National Geographic team.

It is very interesting to see how a handful of translation choices could lead to such greatly contrasting interpretations of the text although the fact that the text is missing significant passages contributes to the difficulty of all of these efforts.

The most important of these choices relates to the translation of the Greek-imported word "daimon" referring to Judas as "spirit" by the National Geographic team, and "demon" by DeConick. According to DeConick, the word had evolved from classical times from the general idea of a spiritual entity to the specifically evil connotation by the time of "Judas".

The book itself has additional merit for those lay readers who are interested in the subject. DeConick includes a very clear discussion of the various "gnostic" communities in play in early Christianity. She is very good specifically on the Sethian movement, to which the author of the Gospel of Judas belongs.

Her exposition of the complex Sethian cosmology was very good - I had previously found this to be pretty confusing. The book also includes her complete translation, which provides the reader the context for the interpretative debate. DeConick goes beyond the first theories of the meanings of this Gnostic work by a National Geographic team of scholars and sets the image of Judas in proper historical and theological context. And even when her examination of the text disagreed with that of other noted scholars, she ably proves her thesis and initiated a new dialogue on the place of this Gospel in Gnostic studies.

I applaud the courage of her convictions and her consummate elevation of honest scholarship. One has to try and recreate the ferment of the 2nd century and on to understand concepts that may be strange to the modern mind after plus years of orthodoxy. One person found this helpful. This book gives one a better understanding of the time that Jesus died from the agnostic view point which is relevant for proper understanding the writings of the rest of the Apostles. A most important work which all Jews and Christians should read.

The bible as constructed shows a veiw of the aposles that just did not make sence to me. Thank God for the discoveres of these forbidden text. See all 21 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.

This 5-week MA module focuses on ‘sociology-in-the-making’, examining the processes of social research rather than its products. It follows the ‘empirical cycle’, providing an overview of key formative moments of sociological research, from formulating research questions, to producing and analysing data, to the public presentation of results.
