The goal of this assignment is to deeply engage students with the ideas of a course author and
give them a chance to demonstrate their understanding of these ideas and their implications for
contemporary analysis of media events, texts, or practices. In a 1000-word(minimum) essay,
students will apply the theoretical perspective of one the course authors weve encountered to
this point to a contemporary media issue. How would JS Mill, for example, given his defense of
the liberty of the press, respond to the cancel culture debates? How might Nancy Fraser
respond to the call for all-gender bathrooms? What would dana boyd have to say about Trumps
embrace of QAnon? The key to success with this assignment will be the precision, clarity, and
sophistication with which you make your case. The closer you stick to the specific texts
involved, the better.
