The final paper should be between 8-12 pages total (12-point type, Times New Roman, double-spaced, 1” margins) and all citations must be formatted according to APA guidelines. Final papers must be submitted through VeriCite (unless you choose one of the alternative options listed below) by 5:00 PM EST on Friday May 3, 2019.

In the final paper you will do the following:

1) locate a case study that relates to a specific topic from the course. So, for example, if you’re interested in echo chambers, you might look for news articles about how online communication is making people more rigid in their ideological positions. If you’re interested in a specific debate like climate change, same sex marriage, or gun control, you might identify a recent event where these controversies came up (e.g, a new legislative effort). Gather at least 5 news articles on your chosen case study. This might include newspaper or magazine articles or TV transcripts pulled from Lexis-Nexis Academic, or online articles or blog postings found in a Google search. The important thing is that you find political media texts that represent your case study (so, news articles, photographs, videos, blog posts). Your goal is to get a sense of what is going on in a general sense. For example: what public problems or controversies surround your chosen case?; do any specific words, phrases, ideas, or images stand out?; are there any patterns of representation or thought that you can identify?

2) Analyze your case study with reference to relevant peer-reviewed scholarship from political communication. You must cite a minimum of 8 peer-reviewed sources in your paper. For guidelines on how to identify peer-reviewed sources see: http://library.sdsu.edu/reference/news/what-does-peer-review-mean and https://www.angelo.edu/services/library/handouts/peerrev.php and http://guides.lib.jjay.cuny.edu/content.php?pid=209679&sid=1746812.

When doing your searches, think in terms of key words that you can derive from your case study, and then plug those key words into Communication and Mass Media Complete, Academic Search Premiere (for scholarly articles), and/or the library catalog (for scholarly books). How you approach searches for relevant scholarship is important, so here are a couple tips. First, think about search parameters. For example, “politics and media” is way too broad. Instead, look at your case study and get a sense of the specific, related terms that it suggests. If your case study involves echo chamber communication, then plug in “echo chamber and politics” or maybe just “echo chamber” for example. If specific searches aren’t producing, then you can broaden your search parameters. Second, if you find a peer-reviewed article, book, or book chapter that is recent and that relates directly to your case study, look at the bibliography and/or notes to identify additional peer-reviewed studies. Think about this in terms of following a paper trail.

With clear and consistent reference to your peer-reviewed sources (both appropriate in-text citations and a bibliography according to APA style) explain how the scholarship you read helps you to understand your case study. Identify larger themes, processes, and problems that the scholarship helps you to identify from your case study. Your analysis should consider both the details of your case study and these more general, thematic aspects of politics and media.
