Outside Research Outline and Presentation Paper

You will sign up to present on a communication technology, then report that communication technology in a presentation to the class, to be accompanied by a short essay that you will turn in on Brightspace. The purpose of the project is to provide an opportunity for you to read more widely on a topic and apply the course concepts to that technology.Outside Research Outline and Presentation Paper.

For the speech presentation:

  1. A brief history of or description of the technology itself. Depending on your topic, this may require reading anything from journal articles to technical reports. There’s no need to go in-depth into the technical aspects; what we are interested in is what the technology does and the cultural impact.
  2. An analysis of the technology from the point of view of this course. For example, how is (or was) this technology perceived from the “Received View?”  How would you analyze it from Slack and Wise’s perspective (e.g., articulation and assemblage, political/economic impact, etc.)?
  3. Identify who benefits from the technology, and who is left behind. Why do you believe this? What are the larger consequences and benefits to society at large?
  4. Your argument should be supported by evidence.
  5. You will be responsible for leading a Q&A/Discussion after your presentation. Your classmates might have their own questions, but you will be expected to prepare 3-5 of your own questions to facilitate discussion if needed.
