It was my turn to present to our research centre group recently. I took the chance to feed back on the small research project I have just completed which has looked at how a small hyperlocal media operation goes about its daily business of reporting life in South Birmingham.

The paper is entitled ‘New Knowledge Networks in communities – the role of ‘hyperlocal’ media operations in facilitating everyday digital participation’ and is largely focused on the methodological approaches I took and the extent to which utilising Bourdieu’s Field Theory is a useful framework to look at the motivations of people who run hyperlocals.

Incidentally, on my own blog you’ll find the infographic I produced as one of the research outcome.
