‘Exploring the experiences of work-related trauma among diaspora journalists’

Special Issue Journal of Global Diaspora & Media

Guest Editors:

Alicia Ferrández Ferrer, Universidad de Alicante

Ola Ogunyemi, University of Lincoln

 

 Previous studies by social psychologists in the past two decades reveal the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is higher among journalists than the general population (Aoki et al. 2012; Backholm & Björkqvist 2012; Dworznik, 2011). However, we have little understanding of work-related trauma among diaspora journalists, because they were hardly included in these empirical studies. 

Less attention has also been paid to the experiences of work-related trauma among diaspora journalists in diaspora studies which mostly prioritise the diversity and complexity of migratory processes, the motivations that push people to leave their own country to reside in another, and the profiles of those who migrate. 

However, the risks of being a journalist in countries with regimes eager to control freedom of the press and being forced into exile have the potential to cause emotional and psychological trauma among diaspora journalists. To compound the problem, they suffer secondary trauma by reading statistics about physical attacks on and killings of journalists such as ‘2,174 journalists have been killed in the exercise of their profession between 1992 and October 2022’ (Comitee to Protect Journalists, 2022); that ‘48 journalists/media collaborators have been killed, and 524 have been imprisoned in 2022’ (Reporters Without Borders, 2022); and that ‘1,811 have been imprisoned for carrying out their work in the last 6 years’ (Reporters Without Borders, 2022). 

This special issue focuses on exploring the experiences of work-related trauma among diaspora journalists from a multidisciplinary perspective in order to bridge the hiatus in literature. The scope of themes includes, but not limited to, an understanding of the perception and personal experiences of work-related trauma among diaspora journalists; an understanding of the causes of work-related trauma; the coping strategies in response to exposure to traumatic events; the family, organisational and social support available to diaspora journalists to cope with trauma; the ‘training needs’ to cope with work-related trauma in specific cultural and socio-political contexts; the trauma induced by physical and online attacks on diaspora journalists; and the experiences of secondary trauma in the host country. Responses to one or some of these themes, and other related themes, from a diversity of methodological and theoretical approaches are welcome.

General Call for Papers

 

The journal provides a platform that theorizes the complexities of the concept of diaspora for clarity and relevance in the twenty-first century and to advance our understanding of the migratory experiences of diaspora people including their media consumption patterns, projection of their voices on civic issues/international conflicts and engagement with communities, agencies and governments at home and host nations.  

It is evident from the title that the journal has a global scope covering a wide geographical spread from Latin America, Global North, North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. GDM welcomes submissions that are theoretically informed and empirically grounded as well as studies that examine country-specific or comparative case-studies. We are looking for cross-disciplinary work with journalism, communication, cross-cultural research, social psychology, media policy, politics and film studies that investigate the representation of diasporic life and experiences from an interdisciplinary approach. Submissions should be methodologically rigorous and could be either qualitative or quantitative or both.

In addition to scholarly articles, GDM will provide a forum for journalists to share ideas and experiences about aspects of journalism practice with scholars and the wider community. This critical reflective piece should adopt situated approaches rooted in journalism practice. Moreover, GDM will publish reviews of books, films, music, exhibitions and photography on diaspora related topics, interviews with diaspora associations and agencies. Please email the principal editor at oogunyemi@lincoln.ac.uk to submit a manuscript or for any further enquiries.
