    This chapter presents the forms and norms of journalism as a specifically urban affair, or situation. It focuses less on specifying what counts as 'urban' journalism or not, but rather how the urban appears through journalism's technical, industrial, architectural and organizational forms; and also through journalistic norms, that is, its various ways of observing, imagining and inhabiting the urban. The chapter's discussion is organized around three conceptual lenses (drawing on Morgan Parmett and Rodgers, 2018): journalism as a culture of public circulation; journalistic placemaking; and journalistic field spaces.
