Pursuing journalism / media studies, with emphasis on civic elements.

Online media. Citizen and civic journalism. Comics.
Citizen journalism, the practice of producing and sharing journalism news by ordinary citizens, emerges from complex interaction among various news institutions (e.g. individual newspapers, agencies, aggregators, bloggers, local communities, etc) in different social conditions. By building agent-based model simulations and looking into real-life cases, we can (at least to some extent) make sense of which kinds of citizen journalism emerge under certain conditions. Using this knowledge, we'll be able to construct ideal public spheres where citizens come together to openly discuss on public issues of their communities.
