This assignment requires you to select, critically analyse and compare two or more crime-related media texts, in order to illuminate aspects of the relationship between media, crime and society. Texts may include newspaper articles (online or offline), audio and video documentaries, podcasts, television programmes, websites, or blogs. In the case of social media, you can include analysis of topical threads, clusters, networks and other features derived from metadata, but you are not required to do so – textual and/or visual analysis of social media communications without consideration of ethical considerations.

For each text (or comment thread/cluster), you need to:

(i) describe what crime-related content is depicted or discussed, and how it is presented;

(ii) critically analyse how the topic is framed and represented, analysing the features that contribute to framing and representation (e.g. language, camera angle, use of music, choice of evidence, what is left out) and;

(iii) assess the accuracy and balance of the depiction and/or discussion using relevant criminological evidence from beyond the text (i.e. evaluate the content within its social context).

(iv) The two or more texts (or groups of texts, in the case of social media content) should also be compared, using dimensions (i-iii above) of your separate analysis of the texts.

In addition to standard references, you must provide working links to the texts that have used, or some other way the assessor can access the texts you are working with (e.g. photographs/links).

Your analysis should be 2000 words, excluding references and links.

You should provide a short introduction to explain your choice of media texts, and a short conclusion to summarise your findings and explain their implications for the relationship between crime, media and society.
