In this proposal, your sentences should answer the following questions specific to each paragraph. Please remember that the proposal itself should NOT be written in question and answer format; however, you must state your research question as a question. (For example, My research question is: What led the print and TV news media to focus on crack babies in the 1980s and create a mass panic?)
This class’s theme is Media and Communication: Complications and Possibilities. However, you are not at all required to pursue a research project based on that theme. Here are your options as to how you can go about developing your research papers for this class.
1) I strongly encourage you to write on a topic that is related to your major or is a research topic of your interest; you may include some aspect of cultural studies in your discussion if it makes sense to do so. However, keep in mind that I am not a scientific or technical person. Please do not write a paper that is too technical for me to fairly and appropriately evaluate.
2) You may focus on a topic that is related to your major or personal interest and include one or two body paragraphs that use media and/or communication technology to support your thesis if it makes sense to do so.
3) If you are having trouble finding a topic that is related to your major or personal interest, you may focus entirely on media (ex’s: news, social networks, YouTube) with or without communication technology (ex’s Internet, sound-based or video-based communication) for your research project. If you decide to take this option, please speak to me about it ASAP before you turn in your research proposal.
