Seth Lewis

Seth C. Lewis is the Shirley Papé Chair in Emerging Media in the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon.

I work at the intersection of digital technologies, media sociology, and journalism studies (see my papers via Google Scholar). My research explores the digital transformation of news and media work, with a longstanding focus on human–technology interactions and media innovation processes. Most recently, I am studying how people experience news in everyday life and the nature of emergent threats to journalists as individuals and the press as institution.

For 2019-2020, I’m on research leave at the University of Oxford as a visiting fellow with the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism.
