Topics for group projects

  • (reserved) Tabloid tracker: locate cases where Lithuanian media republishes information from UK tabloids without citing them – by matching headlines and key arguments
  • (reserved) British scientists: build a database of instances where Lithuanian media claim that „British scientists discovered“ something. Search their names and see how they were presented in international press, if at all
  • (reserved) Behind Barnevernet: compare Lithuanian, Scandinavian and international coverage of how migrants lost their child custody rights in Norway

Development aid critics: find international articles criticizing development aid distribution (typical arguments are that it fosters dependency, is counterproductive, or most of it stays in donor countries), compare the numbers they cite and their sources

  • (reserved) Brexit and Dutch referendum tweets: compare voices and cited sources of proponents of #Brexit and the Dutch referendum over association treaty with Ukraine. Check users’ profiles and network (background, twitter analytics tools)
  • (reserved) Mental disability policies around the world: find internationally published articles comparing reforms in mental health facilities, social care and related aspects: what is the main problem identified, who are cited as experts and as characters

CEE Roma: what is the international coverage of the Roma situation like? Pay attention to characters, voice and stance

  • (reserved) Lithuanian crimes: how are crimes, perpetrated by Lithuanian nationals, reported abroad? At what point is nationality identified? How is described?
  • (reserved) Boris Johnson in Brussels: find newspapers from the time when he worked in Brussels, as well as analysis and criticism of this coverage
