Students will compose a 10-12 page research paper providing a detailed analysis of a media technology within a communication area of their choice (I have chosen journalism). Students will select a communication area on which a substantial body of work has already been published to allow for academic research. While students are expected to display knowledge of the media technology setting under study, they are not expected to provide a comprehensive description of its historical development. Instead, students are required to select a topic narrow enough in its scope that it will allow for research under the course’s time constraints. The paper must include a research question, research sources (8-10 peer reviewed/academic) and theories and produce critical analysis. In the additional materials section below, I have linked a file called “paper topic selection”. Please use that as a guide to writing this paper. You may also use the references that are included in that file as part of the paper. Please remember to use proper APA in-text citations and include a reference page at the end.
