General guidance (given by professor):
Must be interesting to you & me – not a dull walk-through the issue(s)
No ‘right’ answers
Argue do not assert – show don’t tell
Detail is good – depth rather than breadth – a clear focus
Narrative arc – beginning, middle and end
Section titles can help structure (but are not required)
Authors/analysts – not general positions
Clarity of exposition = clarity of thought
Define neologisms and jargon – use sparingly and only if necessary
Acronyms – define on first use
Use range of literature: do not limit to readings we have done in seminars/lectures. Marks may be deducted for lack of demonstration of research skills
Referencing – level and method – Harvard vs. footnote – key issues: clarity and consistency
Using web sources – clear web URL (access date) – too much info better than not enough
Plagiarism and Turn-it-in
No right length – treat word guide as target, but length must be ‘right’ for analysis presented (within reason & regulations)
The case study task is made up of three elements:
1. The issue/case needs to be described on the basis of the original news media story and further sources (either from the news media or academic analysis). This is the chosen media story: https://www.economist.com/finance-and-economics/2020/02/15/technology-is-poised-to-upend-americas-property-market
2. The case needs to be subjected to an analysis drawn from the range of academic analyses we have looked at in class (I have provided the lecture slides and some seminar readings so the writer can draw analyses from the material covered in class); this second element can be developed in any way you wish, as long as it illuminates and explores the wider implications of the story you have chosen;
3. The case study should include an evaluative conclusion that makes it clear what the analysis offers to help the understanding of the case/story.
The key to a successful case study is the integration of a specific case/story into the wider analytical debates we have examined across the two Economics for the Real World modules. Successful case studies will have a clearly focussed research question to frame the discussion – this question will form the title of your case study. The analysis will explore the issue(s) discussed in some detail while the evaluation will make clear why you think the issue you have chosen is important to examine.
Case studies that are overly reliant on sources already identified in the course materials and seminar readings will limit the ability to achieve the best grades.
