1. The paper should be 12 point font, 4-5 pages double-spaced, MLA or similar academic citation format including Works Cited or equivalent.
2. Include a title.
3. Analyze two or more direct quotes from our assigned readings, with proper citations.
4. One clear central argumentative claim should be presented in the introduction in the form of a thesis statement. This thesis should be narrowly defined to be supportable by the citable evidence and analysis you have to usher in its support in the body of the paper.
5. The paper should not include the words “we” or “they” outside of quoted material or vague phrases describing groups of people such as “those people” or “the media.” Be specific. This constraint is meant to encourage a formal tone and an appeal that does not rely on assumptions about the subjects and the readers of your paper that tend to creep in when they are framed as vague “us” vs. “them” arguments.
6. The paper should avoid broad historical, social, and cultural generalizations that are difficult or impossible to back up while using your space to develop and support a narrow, well-defined thesis. If you want to compare old and new media, pick specific examples that you can actually analyze and for which you have direct evidence or examples available. If you want to broach broader questions based on your tightly focused work in the short paper, consider adding these as suggestions for further research in your conclusion.
Final paper proposal:
Since more and more people tend to change their reading way from traditional books to enhanced e-book and multimedia e-book. In my second paper, I would like to explore whether the new media will eat the old media alive in the new way people read?
“Our culture wants both to multiply its media and to erase all traces of mediation: ideally, it wants to erase its media in the very act of multiplying them.” (Bolter, Grusin, P5)
“Older electronic and print media are seeking to reaffirm their status within our culture as digital media challenge that status. Both new and old media are invoking the twin logics of immediacy and hypermediacy in their efforts to remake themselves and each other.” (P5)
“No medium today, and certainly no single media event, seems to do its cultural work in isolation from other social and economic forces. What is new about new media comes from the particular ways in which they refashion older media and the ways in which older media refashion themselves to answer the challenges of new media.” (P15)
New media will not eat the old media alive in the new way people read.
“The digital medium can also be more aggressive in its remediation. It can try to refashion the older medium or media entirely, while still marking the presence of the older media and therefore maintaining a sense of multiplicity or hypermediacy.”(Bolter. Jay, P66)
“the new medium can remediate by trying to absorb the old medium entirely.”(Bolter. Jay, P67)
“ Like every form of new media, they depend on earlier media for their definition of the immediacy of the experience that they provide.”(Bolter. Jay, P71)
