Abstract

This paper explores the interpretation and adaptation of journalistic professionalism in Russia. By
analysing professionalism(s) thought journalists own articulation of their practices, it discusses
myths, versions of cultural contexts and legitimations of journalists’ social position and social
trust-building. Furthermore, it challenges the idea of a ‘global model of professionalism’, by
illuminating historical traditions and philosophical patterns, which influenced the development of
journalism as a professional practice.
When writing this paper I was not even two years into my PhD and have just started my
field-research. Since then, I have developed a more focussed approach to my study, a more
theoretically underpinned methodology and a more buttress system of argumentation.
Nonetheless, I sill hold on to the main idea of this paper –local differences matter.
