6. Set Text
The main text for this module is the book Mediating Politics by Neil Washbourne (Maidenhead: Open University Press, 2010). It is available as an e-book via the university library catalogue. There are also multiple copies in the Civic Quarter library should you wish to consult a printed copy (there are six copies in the short loan section of the library). Please note that you are expected to read and take detailed discursive notes, including page references, from each of the set readings. You are also expected to catch up with any readings you might be unfortunate enough to miss due to illness or other reasons. To make the most of this module, you will need, in addition, to regularly read and engage with a variety of local / national newspaper, radio, and internet coverage of politics. Such engagement will profoundly aid you in meeting the requirement for â€˜contemporary evidenceâ€™ of media coverage of politics and also help you situate your content analysis.
