Assignment 4: Research essay

· 案例展示

Due: 23 November 23.59pm

Length: 2000 words

Task

An essay of 2000 words that answers one question from the following list of six options and includes reference to:

  • Compulsory unit of study readings – unlimited
  • Other academic sources – three to six (this may or may not  include unit of study recommended readings)
  • Media examples – unlimited

Why are the number of additional academic sources limited? As first year students you are still learning to research and this is to encourage you to find the most relevant sources and research deeply, rather than just cherry pick from all over the place.

Questions

  1. “The digital creative economy depends on the belief that social media work is easy and potentially profitable” (Duffy and Wissinger, 2017). Evaluate this statement with reference to celebrity and influencers within the realities of the Australian digital media economy.
  1. Facebook argues regulation of digital platforms in Australia would result in restricted access to online services. Why should such regulatory bodies as the ACCC and ACMA have authority over the Australian operations of international companies like Facebook, Google, Amazon and Netflix?
  1. “Social media activism and innovation can be a double-edged sword, as Indigenous activists are exposed to racist discourse and traumatic content online and often experience direct threats of violence” (Carlson, Dreher, 2018). Discuss this statement with reference to media activism and the role of Australian regulatory bodies.
  1. Australian laws and regulations that promote and support the production and distribution of Australian media content are archaic and ineffectual within a global media landscape. Discuss.
  1. Regulation vs self-regulation. What are the advantages and disadvantages of both systems for the protection of rights and privacy of Australian media users in a diverse and fragmented media landscape?
  1. Within a year of passage of the Federal Government’s media reform laws Channel Nine successfully launched a takeover bid for Fairfax Media, intensifying the concentration of media ownership in Australia even further. What are the arguments for further media reform to ensure greater diversity and plurality of voices in the Australian media landscape?

Expectations

Your essay answer is expected to use analytical writing and accurate and complete APA 6th edition style in-text references and reference list. For anonymous marking, you are expected to ONLY use your student identification number (SID) in the assignment file name and file contents.
