About the Journal
The Motley Undergraduate Journal operates out of The University of Calgary and aims to feature student work that displays excellence in research, analysis or creative production concerning the topic of Communication, Media or Film Studies from any post secondary institution in Canada. We welcome work from other departments as long as it maintains a communication, media, and film studies focus. The Motley Undergraduate Journal is devoted to reflecting the diversity of communication and multimedia studies and will represent a breadth of student work on various topics. We are looking for clarity, effective writing, strong theoretical foundations, original research, and insightful analysis. The Motley Undergraduate Journal is produced in partnership between undergraduate students and the Department of Communication, Media and Film at the University of Calgary.
The Motley team is proud to present the second issue of the Motley Undergraduate Journal! This second issue provided more opportunity for the University of Calgary’s talented students to showcase their academic work, as well as signifies the Motley’s expansion into publishing work from other universities within Canada. This opportune meeting of youthful perceptiveness and time-honoured theoretical perspectives has allowed the Motley authors to pose and answer some essential questions about the media environment in which most of us swim like fish in water without paying much attention to its properties. Read on to enjoy work by brilliant student authors and join us again for our next Volume!
