Jack Rosenberry is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Media and Communication at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY.
He has been a professor of journalism and media since 2002, and before that worked in newspaper journalism for more than 20 years. His teaching specialties are journalism and multimedia content creation, and his primary research interests are online community journalism and participatory citizen journalism, especially as both relate to civic engagement.
He is co-editor of Public Journalism 2.0: The Promise and Reality of a Citizen Engaged Press (Routledge, 2010) and co-author of Applied Mass Communication Theory: A Guide for Media Practitioners (Pearson, 2009).
He also is the author of numerous articles and presentations about the development and implications of online journalism.
He is a member of and actively involved with the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, and a past officer in AEJMC’s Newspaper and Online News Division, Community Journalism Interest Group and Participatory Journalism Interest Group.
His research agenda addresses community implications for online journalism, including traditional newspapers’ use of participatory journalism in their online news presentations and — more recently — a focus on newly emerging online community news sites. This includes a special emphasis on what such journalistic forms can accomplish with regard to civic engagement and democratic involvement.
