The smarter way
to do assignments.

Please note that this is just a preview of a school assignment posted on our website by one of our clients. If you need assistance with this question too, please click on the Order button at the bottom of the page to get started.

Answer ANY THREE of the SIX questions presented below. Each answer will be marked out
of 10.
• Each answer should be between 2 to 3 pages in length, double-spaced.
• Please cite the course readings or lectures where necessary, but there is no need to provide
a bibliography (the syllabus is your de facto bibliography).
• Avoid excessive direct quotation. Your task is to demonstrate your knowledge of course
ideas and concepts in your own words.
• Read the questions carefully and answer the questions fully.
• Submit your completed exam in either .pdf or .docx format through Quercus. Files
submitted in other formats (e.g., .pages) might not be readable by the system and thus might
not be graded.
• Each answer will be graded out of 10 with the total being factored up to 35.
• Please be aware that all submitted exams will make use of the plagiarism
detection system “for a review of textual similarity and detection of possible plagiarism. In
doing so, students will allow their essays to be included as source documents in the reference database, where they will be used solely for the purpose of
detecting plagiarism. The terms that apply to the University’s use of the
service are described on the web site.”
1) Pingree and Gitelman characterize the study of new media as the study of today’s new
media, arguing instead for a more historically informed approach to the concept. Why do
they make such an argument? Discuss this with reference to three reasons why we should
approach the study of new media historically.
2) Fuchs provides an overview of how Web 2.0 platforms like Facebook have surveillance
at the core of their operations, and identifies a number of significant issues as to how this is
problematic. Discuss this issue with reference to three of these reasons.
3) According to Terranova, “free labour” in new media environments is a more complex
problem than the idea of commodified audience labour found in traditional media studies.
Why does the author argue this? Discuss this with reference to three specific examples of
this complexity in action.
4) Croteau argues that self-produced media challenge some of the basic precepts of media
studies. How does it do this? What are the problems that might arise from such a
conception of “self-produced media”?
5) The New Mobilities Paradigm posits that the time we spend travelling or commuting
today can no longer be considered useless or wasted. What reasons does Urry give for this
claim? Illustrate your discussion of Urry’s reasoning with specific references to Prior’s
discussion of laptop mobility for musicians (you may use other sources as well as Prior).
6) Digital technology and new media communication platforms add a great deal of
complexity to the process of identity formation. What do we mean by the idea of online
identity? Discuss this with reference to three examples of how new media contribute to the
complexity of this process.
