This paper to considers some of the systematic problems and constraints faced \ud by academics teaching and researching in the field of journalism and journalism \ud studies. To do this, I draw on MacIntyre’s philosophical concept of practice, \ud applying it to the practice of journalism and the practice of academia, which \ud I argue here have many commonalities. This conceptualisation of the practical \ud activities of journalists and academics also takes account of their factual \ud dependence on institutions. MacIntyre argues that although institutions should be \ud considered to be necessary, in bureaucratic capitalist social systems they tend to \ud pursue external goods at the cost of the goods internal to the practice. Practices \ud thus become corrupted as institutions orient them to the pursuit of external goods. \ud I argue that both journalists and academics are subject to similar processes of \ud institutional domination, or colonisation, and that because of this, the capacity \ud study, teach, and then practice a critical journalism adequate to a properly \ud democratic community is stymied. The most significant problem on this analysis \ud is that processes of colonisation are not discrete, they are systematic, extensive \ud and commonly experienced. Consequently it is inadequate to consider discrete \ud forms of resistance to these problems and constraints. Instead, I argue, we must \ud consider common and collective forms of resistance.
