Richard Keeble, who is leaving the City University’s journalism department to become Professor of Journalism at the University of Lincoln, is hoping to do more research on journalists’ ethics and the local press.
Keeble, who, as reported last week (Press Gazette, 24 January) has been at City for 19 years, is hoping to devote two days a week to research in his new post at Lincoln.
Keeble joined City University in 1984 and directed the international journalism programme until 1991. Since 1996 he has directed the Journalism and Social Science degree. Currently the department’s director of research, he gained a PhD in 1996 for his study of the press coverage of the Gulf War. He has worked on local papers in Nottingham and Cambridge and was editor of The Teacher, the weekly newspaper of the National Union of Teachers, from 1980 to 1984.
