for McLuhan, I had proposed to look at this book “The Medium is the Massage” if you can get hold of it or find a pdf of it. Reflect on how the book design is in dialogue with the title/content.
Ideally, you would develop questions on the topic of how various “media” massage us today, or specifically you in China. Try to find a critique of McLuhan. For example, how would “Black Cinema” fit into this concept of McLuhan?
You can see the paper that I upload Media theory, you can include it
