New York Times Media Project


The media project textually analyzes New York Times articles between 1850 and 2009. The objective of the media project is to trace the genealogical representation of Muslims, Arabs, and Islam. Through a 150-year analysis of newspaper articles, interns examine discourses in media representation that often coincide with shifts in international politics, imperial interests, or globalization. The media project is managed by teams of undergraduate interns who work a minimum of one year on the project, though many work two years. The interns present their research at the annual UC Davis Undergraduate Research Conference, and the annual UC Davis’ Middle Eastern/South Asian Studies Research Symposium. Interns also receive formal training in archival research, journalistic textual analysis, and grant writing.
