This assignment allows you the opportunity to undertake some preliminary research on topics that are of considerable interest within communication studies.
Completing this assignment is as easy
Step One: Choosing topic
The topict I choose is: "Accessibility
Find two authors who have written about the concept you have chosen and – more importantly – that have attempted to provide a definition of that concept. Once you have this you will tell me what those two authors say about the concept and how they define it. Is it different? The same?
You are to provide three brief case studies that illustrate both the concept and the ways that the two authors you have chosen have characterized that concept. For example: If I were to select “hegemony”, and I find one author who talks about the concept by referring to the idea of military dominance and I find another author who talks about hegemony as stifling contrary opinions, I then have to find three examples that illustrate those two views. You may use the internet to find the examples, and I expect that each case study will be explained in brief – maybe a paragraph or two for each.
In the end your paper will look like this:
a. An introduction which explains why you have chosen the topic
b. A section which shows me how two authors have defined and discussed this topic
c. A section which shows me three examples which illustrate what the topic is, why it
is important, and which illustrates the ideas and arguments of the authors you
d. A conclusion that tells me why this is significant for communication
