Final Major Project is upon me.
I delved right in this week, and after finding myself really frustrated by the mass media and the information overload we’re currently at the mercy of, I went straight in at that. It’s contemporary and lots of context at the moment, think of Brexit and Trump etc., and the pressure on all of us to be informed (but not too informed), and to pick a political leaning (but make sure you pick the right one). Frankly it’s all too much, but it is what it is.
Or is it?
Because the impact that the mass media have upon our collective consciousness is something fascinating and equally frightening, so I think to demonstrate this in my FMP is what I’d like to do. I’m already getting this aching sinking feeling that I’m opening an enormous can of worms, much like I did with my dissertation, but I’ve done it now and it’s interesting so away we go.
