Hey! Wanna know what I did today? (Of course you do!) Well, today I turned in my dissertation proposal for my Master of Letters in Media and Culture. And I’m pretty gosh-darned excited about it!
Of course, gale-force winds across Scotland (now being referred to as Hurricane Bowbag) means that I’ve only submitted my paper electronically, and will need to turn in the hard copy version tomorrow but, still, it’s done!
What’s that? You really want to know what my dissertation’s research question is? Well, since you asked with such excitement, I guess I can tell you! So, in big, headline font, here it is:
How do users of social media determine the legitimacy of news and information shared on Facebook?
Yeah, it’s going to be exciting doing the research on that one. (No, really it is!)
Anyhow, up next is an exam for my Media Economics class. I am decidedly less excited about that because, well, I don’t get this whole economics thing. (Help?)
But that can wait until tomorrow. For now, it’s back to my reward for finishing my proposal.
What’s that? Well, since you asked, that would be watching The Godfather Trilogy. Again. Because it’s awesome.
(Oh, and in case you found this post through a web search looking for a different modest proposal, you can find that one here: A Modest Proposal, by Jonathan Swift.)
