Welcome to my homepage!
I am a Nordic media and journalism scholar, journalism and media educator, research communications professional, as well as an educational and research community developer, and this is my personal homepage.
Please take a look at my newest books:
- Reviewing culture online: Post-institutional cultural critique across platforms (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022) examines reviewing cultural objects online by ordinary people
- Pedagogical opportunities of the review genre: Learning in cultures of evaluation (Routledge, 2024, forthcoming) inquiries into reviews and reviewing from a pedagogical perspective
- Reporting on artificial intelligence: A handbook for journalism educators (UNESCO, 2023) inquires into artificial intelligence as a societal subject of coverage and a tool that can be used for pedagogical and journalistic purposes
You may also want to take a look at my faculty member page at the University of Gothenburg (Nordicom), follow me on Twitter (@maaritjii) or Mastodon (@firstname.lastname@example.org), Google Scholar, Academia.edu or NordMedia Network, or contact me on LinkedIn or Facebook. For my e-mail addresses, see the contact details.
Looking forward to hearing from you! Please note that there is a double-a twice (both in Maarit and Jaakkola) and a double-k (Jaakkola) in my name, which is of Finnish origin. My name is pronounced /ˈmɑːrɪt ˈjɑːkːolɑ/.
