Essay (Based on the poster)
Students are required to develop the subject/theme identified in assessment 1 (poster) and explore this in greater detail by extending the theoretical discussion and/or application of theory to practice. It is expected therefore the students will explore a similar theme in their essay to that selected for their poster. In exceptional circumstances it will be possible for students to choose a different topic but this is only possible with the prior agreement of the module leader. The assignment will require engagement with the on-going contestations in contemporary retail environments and detailed engagement with the required readings of the module.
