” a comparison of internet coverage from CNN, BBC and CBC of a single international event
” one episode of a TV show
” an evening news program

IMPORTANT *)In each instance the object you have chosen must be considered from as many different angles as are appropriate within the page range. If you are considering a visual medium, for example, then you will want to take into account not only the meaning of what is said or portrayed, but also how it is portrayed.


IMPORTANT **)Papers are to be 4-5 pages long, double spaced with 12 point font and 1 inch margins. Name and title are to appear at the top of the first page of your essay  do not use cover pages.

IMPORTANT NOTE ***: The goal of the assignment is to see how well you work with the concepts of the course, in particular representation or ideology or discourse. This means that part of your assignment will involve a discussion of the significance of these concepts themselves. One strategy in writing the assignment would be to assume that the person you are writing to has no idea what the terms mean, you will have to make it clear to them the meaning of the terms in the context of cultural studies. The same point would apply if you were to use other concepts from the glossary. You may also engage critically with the concepts or arguments themselves, though this is not necessary.

IMPORTANT ****) This is University Level final essay assignment. AN AMAZING JOB IS REQUIRED FROM SOMEONE WITH GREAT WRITING SKILLS AND ABILITIES.
