Take one lecture from book Minifie Lectures collection and historical parallels and draft an essay on one aspect of the state of Canadian journalism and democracy in the globalization period (1980-) and compare and contrast with Bangladeshi journalism history experience. You will be expected to demonstrate understanding of other accounts but to go beyond them, developing your own considered position on the topic. Assume a Canadian audience of well-educated readers with little to no knowledge of these debates or journalism history. Your final product will be a concise, accessible, publication-ready essay for a glossy magazine like The Walrus, The Atlantic or Harper’s, an online publication like The Tyee or an alt city-paper like Regina’s prairie dog magazine.
please take chapter ‘Can Professional Journalist Survive Corporate Authoritarianism’ by Arthur Kent page 173 to 184
