Australian Crime Reporting

A Companion to the Australian Media

Call for expressions of interest to contribute to a work being edited by Professor Bridget Griffen-Foley of Macquarie University.

Dear colleagues,
I am editing A Companion to the Australian Media, an A-Z reference work on all aspects of the media in Australia. The volume, featuring 540 entries and 230 contributors, will be published by Australian Scholarly Publishing in 2014.

I have yet to find an author for the entry on crime reporting. The length assigned is 1000 words; the focus is obviously on Australia; and the approach should be historical, but go right up to the present. I could be quite generous with the deadline for the right author! I wonder if any of you may be interested in taking this on, or could recommend a suitable author?

Sincere thanks,
Bridget. b.foley[at]mq.edu.au
