When educating new journalists, an important part of the training takes place when the journalist students do their internship. In this socialisation process, what the students learn, and what values are either enforced, reinforced or abandoned, is crucial to the future of educating journalists and the future of journalism. Yet, we do not know much about the process as a whole: From when the students enter the journalism education to the stage at which they practice journalism professionally. The goal of the seminar is to bring together Nordic and European journalism researchers and journalism educators to share knowledge on the topic of interns as part of journalism education. We aim to establish a network of scholars and practitioners with a specific interest in studying and educating journalist students and interns, in gaining knowledge about their self-understanding, their perceptions of their jobs and education, the socialization processes they find themselves in, their professional knowledge and professional practice – and other interesting topics concerning internships.
