Description: If you're trying to bridge the gap between your course and your project or dissertation, this text is an invaluable companion in providing careful explanations of the steps necessary to conduct a range of research projects in media, communication and cultural studies. From ethnography to digital content analysis, the second edition of this student favourite will equip you with the methods you need to keep pace in the ever-changing context of writing and research.Each level of analysis has is own dedicated chapter. You will learn how to research texts with an awareness of the problem of thinking of the media text as a single, isolated entity. You will learn how to research institutions and audiences with sensitivity to the blurring boundaries between the two. And you will learn how to write up and present your work, with templates providing real-life examples.Suitable for students of all ability ranges, and expanded with further international case studies, How to Do Media and Cultural Studies continues to provide clear, comprehensive support to students independently embarking on their own research project.
