Verónica Sánchez Medina
Working title of her dissertation: Facing the crisis: how the Mexican press is managing its economic crisis and the implications of this for the democracy.
Verónica Sánchez’ researches media transformation in Mexico. Currently, she is making a research trip to Mexico in order to conduct interviews and archive work for her PhD on media changes. She will be interviewing executives of newspapers and digital media, managers and journalists to find out how the transformation of advertising markets and readership trends are affecting their organisations and the strategies implemented towards these changes.
She holds a Masters in Media, Journalism and Globalization from Aarhus University and Hamburg University, and a BA in Communication from Panamerican University (Mexico City). She has taught Journalism at Panamerican University and worked as a reporter in Reforma, a leading national newspaper in Mexico.
As for that working experience and her postgraduate studies, she got deeply interested in the future of journalism. She is convinced that the discussion around a new economic model for news organizations should reach beyond the industry. Thus, she is delighted to share thoughts on the topic with academics, students, journalists, media managers and anyone interested in the future of the news.
