Student Experience Module GEO381
From Robert Pashley
Produce a media piece of up to 5 minutes that addresses one of the following titles. Each option ends in a colon – you are expected to provide the second half of the title by outlining an argument that uses an example or particular approach.
- Socio-spatial inequalities and perceptions of happiness and well-being:
- The concept of positional and non-position goods in understanding happiness:
- The limitations of happiness as a social indicator:
- The role of civil society in democracy:
- How realisation of citizenship is limited:
- Migration and citizenship:
Announce at the start of the video the full title of your piece. REMEMBER: the second half of your title should help you make an argument, so your piece isn’t purely descriptive.
You must bring literature into the piece – discuss theories and studies throughout, and use captions to reference what you are discussing. Provide a final slide with a reference list.
The style of the piece is very much up to you. You might want to personally present to camera or have the information relayed by ‘talking heads’. You might want to provide only a voice-over and not appear in the footage at all. You could talk over static images, animation, or footage collected yourself. The key is making sure the imagery and audio align. As long as the academic substance is there, the tone could range from very light-hearted to very sombre or serious. If the content is there, then we welcome innovation.
