A new email newsletter has been launched by Brazilian journalist and journalism lecturer Moreno Cruz Osório to provide a weekly roundup of key research, developments and stories in the media industry in the country — in English.
“Since 2014 me and other two editors have been curating the most interesting discussions about our professional and academic field around the world.
“Since then, Brazilian independent journalism has evolved a lot and our legacy media is making important moves to keep alive and relevant. Today we have a vibrant journalism ecosystem, despite the problems we all know journalism is going through.”
Moreno starting thinking about creating an English version of the newsletter while in The Netherlands as a visiting PhD researcher last year, but BJD isn’t a straight translation:
“Brazilian Journalism Digest (BJD) is also based on curation and it’s also sent on Fridays, but it is shorter than NFJ. On BJD I offer some links about what’s happening in Brazilian journalism.
“Most of the time links are in Portuguese, but sometimes there is content in English and/or Spanish. Translation difficulties aside, it’s a way to organise what is taking place, and stimulate discussion.”
