Many respected scholars have been moving away from'Development Communication'and its historical baggage, and embracing a softer, more self-directed 'social change' perspective. Citing examples from the field of communication studies, discuss the apprehensions that may have led them to make the shift. 2. "Advancements in conimunication technology are colliding with an increasingly fragile sense of the self as we are compelled to re-assess our position in the world by having increasing access to knowledge of the world itself. This, alongside a threat of invasion of our

privary, which is the ultimate threat to the loss of the'self, has made the appetite for social media tools such that they have become an essential way to establish our identity and so form relationships with others." Provide an informed comment on this statement by drawing on some of the recent debates on social media. 3. "Television Studies," unlike conventional mass communication research, is marked by a great deal of disciplinary hybridity. As television scholars are examining the subject from

several disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, there are relatively recent approaches to understanding and conceptualizing television from a political and methodological point of view. Write an essay on these new perspectives, outlining some of the interesting theoretical questions one could ask of television.
