Content analysis and discourse analysis – sources for the final paper

Dear MJs,

as many of you will be using content analysis and discourse analysis in your final papers, I prepared bibliographies about these two research methods to support your work. I also checked your access to these sources and happy to report that most are available online. I included links:

Media Research Methods Bibliography Critical Issues

I also attach three sources (two articles on discourse analysis by van Dijk, and a book chapter on content analysis by Hansen et al.): Van Dijk Critical discourse analysis

Van Dijk Principles of discourse analysis

Content analysis Hansen et al.(In case it does not open because the file is too large, I put a copy for your use in my mailbox at the JMSC office. Feel free to take it for copying, but please return so other students can also use it.)
