What is this blog about?


I’m beginning my dissertation for my undergraduate study in Communication and Media Studies BSc and it is going to be about; blogging, human rights and situation of the Baha’is in Iran. This is a rough title and may change as I work out my research approach:

To what extent can the ‘blogs’ of sympathisers and representatives of the Bahá’í Faith be seen as interactive channels of communication that report on the persecution of the Bahá’ís in Iran?

So I’m going to be looking at the effectiveness of blogging in the context of new media and communication, by analysing key blogs which have reported on this issue. And I’m going to try to underpin the dissemination of information and how a blog can impact a news article and an organisation or the other way around, this is something I need to explore in my research approach.

Check list:

  1. Make a research blog
  2. Work on introduction and methodology
  3. Conduct research
  4. Discuss findings
  5. Wrap up the whole piece
