Paper details An introduction (tip – write this last). Your introduction should ‘introduce’ the topic you will discuss, and the main points you will raise in discussion. A scholarly approach, with a theoretical framework and evidence from at least 10 academic sources. The academic resources should be from peer-reviewed journal articles and/or chapters from researched books. Note: The sources should be a mix of readings from this unit and further research you have conducted into secondary sources. In addition, you should refer to media sources such as newspaper articles and broadcast news reports.
Remember that examples and media sources must be cited and referenced in the same way as other information. You are expected to use at least 3 media sources. While discussing 3 specific concrete examples, your overall argument should be coherent, bringing the 3 examples together. Note that you are not analysing the issue itself, but the way it has been communicated by media and the significance of this. Or the way media has contributed to the issue. Keep descriptions of the actual issue to a minimum and concentrate on your analysis regarding the question. The essay should critically engage with key concepts and theories in the ways that demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of the unit content. Don’t be too broad or general: a narrow focus will usually be a better way to answer this question. When considering the history of your topic, don’t resort to long chronological explanations. Instead, you should describe events briefly, then consider their significance to your argument as part of your analysis. Please use a minimum of 5-10 scholarly resources to support your essay. Please remember to use in-text reference of Harvard style.
