I choose cultural factors and how they affect the treatment of diseases within the society
The social science issue that I have selected to research is Media & Technology. I will specifically be focusing on the affects of media on our mental health. I will be researching if the development of media has caused a negative impact to our mental health. I am interested in this because as many others, I grew up in a world where media and technology was advancing at an extreme pace. I am very curious to see what the effects of this was on those in my age group. I believe that the best audience for this research would be young adults. I believe I can tailor my message to an audience of young adults by discussing aspects of media that they can relate to. Some of these would include social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram, the video game industry, and of course popular television and film. By discussing these different forms of media and technology I think I will be able to help my audience understand what my message is in my presentation. I will want to make sure I donâ€™t use scientific terminology because a large majority of my audience will not understand what I am saying. By relating to them with topics they understand, I can explain my research with terms and examples that they can understand.
