Thoughts and ramblings on tech, media, culture, and food. Plus some other stuff, I'm sure.

Nine Questions

These are taken away from Carol Wilder's Understanding Media Studies course at The New School.

  1. What do I want to know?
  2. Why does it matter? To whom?
  3. What do we already know about the subject?
  4. What is a workable research question?
  5. How can I find the answer?
  6. How can I analyze the results?
  7. What conclusions can I draw?
  8. What can I contribute to future studies?
  9. How can I communicate the result to others?

This post is set up to be a reminder to me as I continue my masters degree. I need to be thinking about and answering these questions as I determine the research I want to do in this field.
