Writing Abstracts

Once you have done some research and have a context for your blog post, write an abstract that outlines, in a short paragraph, the focus of your blog, the debates or literatures you are engaging, the method/analytical approach of your blog post (media analysis, postcolonial feminist, etc.).  To help you structure your abstract, your abstract should consist of 3 parts:

  • What You're Studying: start with a statement about your blog topic which includes background contextualizing your topic
  • So What?: demonstrate why your blog topic is important and why your reader should care
  • Game Plan: outline the main points of your blog and how you will address them
