Gonzo Journalism - An Ethnography Study

Dr. Nima Jerrit John, Prerna Sharma


Abstract: Gonzo as refers to a particular type of approach that involves a researcher taking position as close to the subject without being a part of it and using that position to present a vivid and personalized account. This paper describes an ethnographic case study on Gonzo Journalism to be used in Media Studies. This technique provides an experimental approach towards solving the problems of New Media Journalism and Citizen Journalism, New Process of News and News Values, and Defining the New Age Role of Journalism along with its Principles of Ethics. The Ethnographic Study will enable students to understand the link between the theories with the practice of Journalism. Along with that, it instigates the use of your own knowledge to develop an understanding of people, issues, and environment.
