C.W. Anderson

Author and Professor at CUNY College of Staten Island

C.W. Anderson is an assistant professor of media culture at the College of Staten Island and the director of research at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

His book, Rebuilding the News: Metropolitan Journalism in the Digital Age, was published in 2013 by Temple University Press. Rebuilding the News chronicles the history of online journalism in Philadelphia from 1997 until the present, and explores what the larger lessons of Philadelphia can teach us about journalism in the digital age.

His current research traces the use of “documents” and “data” in journalism from the beginning of the 20th century to the present and attempts to flesh out a cultural history of the idea of the journalistic “report.”
