<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Annie Fukushima

This project analyzed discourse circulating in the Salt Lake Tribune describing violence towards people of color by the police within the last year of the Trump administration from Jan 20, 2020, to Jan 20, 2021. It consisted of a thematic analysis of articles mined through the Marriott Library online database. My data were recorded in an Excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet contained a list of 54 themes which language from the articles was categorized under.
