Pablo J. Boczkowski

Pablo Boczkowski's research program looks at the transition from print to digital media, with a focus on the organizational and occupational dynamics of contemporary journalism and increasingly examined by adopting a comparative lens. He is the author of three books, one edited volume, and over twenty journal articles and fifty conference presentations. His current major project, undertaken jointly with his doctoral students Eugenia Mitchelstein and Ignacio Siles is an ethnographic study of the demise of print newspapers in Chicago, Paris, and Buenos Aires, as a window into larger dynamics of institutional decay.
