Race and the Digital: Racial Formation and 21st Century Technologies

From Tweets to Streets? By Joe Bruin

This is my introduction. It is here that I state my argument and attract the reader. I might begin with a compelling quote or story that situates my topic. Or, I could describe a perplexing problem or contradiction that sets the stage for my essay. My opening leads to my research question. This will allow the reader to anticipate the direction of my essay, but it is only a taste of the paper to come. 
I will want to be explicit about how my paper engages the research question: "Using digital ethnography and course readings, write a report that describes how a social movement of your choice is engaging new media. In your evaluation, consider the ways race shapes digital participation and what your observations suggest about the potential of the web to generate critical engagement among and within diverse communities. Based on your analysis, create a digital supplement that links to resources that document and contextualize the movement you have chosen." 
My total essay be about 1,750 - 2,250 words/7-9 pages and is due on Thursday June 9th at 5 p.m.
