List of References for research paper





Critical research/academic book:


Hosley, William. 1990. The Japan Idea: Art and Life in Victorian America (21.10. – 30.12.1990). Hartford, CT: Wadsworth Atheneum.

The contents in this book cover American taste and the art of Japan. This book also covers topics such as japan in the artist’s eye and how American industry responds to the Japanese style.

This relates to my topic issue because I am discussing how “emoji’s” originated in japan and now every I-phone user in America uses them daily.

Part Two

Recognizing Validity of Sources

I chose to search for books with the keyword Japan. I chose this because in my research paper I would like to compare Japanese and American cultures. I found this source on the library shelf, in search for Japanese history and art. This was difficult to find due to the fact they do not section the library by culture, just topic. Also, the entire floor is for art and design so I had to search the floor to find only one Japanese art book. I accessed the source by taking it off the shelf and reading it while sitting in the library. I could also check the book out if needed and that will be sufficient because I can reference it when-ever I need.





Mullally, Una. 2016. “… On Emoji’s.” Irish Times(Dublin), May 28. Saturday Magazine, May      28, 2016. Accessed March 13, 2018.


This newspaper article is discussing the importance of how emoji use is eroding human emotions and gestures. Also, how visual communication is destroying verbal and written communication.

This is important to my topic because to use examples for ways communication through cultures is becoming less traditional, I need to speak about how visual communication is destroying verbal communication.

Recognizing Validity of Sources

I found this source through the new school library research page. I typed in “emoji’s” in search. I found the source on library proxy and can access it through ProQuest. Very easy to download. This digital resource allows me to print it or view it online. This helps because I do not have to worry about a time access limit.



Archive Source:

Thumim, Nancy. 2014. Self-Representation and Digital Culture. Basingstoke: Palgrave       Macmillan Limited.


This book has chapters of self-representation online as well as digital culture and genre. This book will speak of using media as self-representation also cultural mediation.

This will be important for my research because I am studying the cultural mediation of emoji use as well as representation of self-using visual aspects.

Part Two

Recognizing Validity of Sources

From the new school library webpage, I searched the word digital into e books and found this in the ProQuest eBook central. It was hard to find since it is part of a full book. I can read the article through this page but I cannot download it. I need a ProQuest account. A more sufficient way would be to purchase the book.


News Source:

DiGiulio, Sarah. 2017. Your Smartphone Is Changing the Human Race in Surprising Ways.          Accessed March 26, 2018.


This news article is a beginning to understanding how using devices is affecting human lives genetically. One main section speaks of how technology is changing the way humans empathize with others. I need this information to discuss the way people communicate differently. It also discusses how it expands social circles worldwide. Which is good information to discuss in how Japanese and American cultures can now easily speak to one another through social media.

Recognizing Validity of Sources

I was recommended this source by a friend of mine while discussing the way communication is changing due to electronics. This source comes from a news network. It was written by a journalist. I found it through google searching smartphone changing. This is a very easy accessible source that I can reference from my phone or laptop. It was reported by the news channel



Chapter from Critical Research Book:


Thumim, Nancy. 2014. “Self-Representation, Digitial Culture and Genre” in Self-Representation     and Digital Culture.167-181. Palgrave Macmillian Limited.


Part Two

Recognizing Validity of Sources

I chose this because it speaks of “• emotion • experience • interior worlds • personal history • idea of a personal ‘journey’ (actual or metaphorical) • individual perspective” it also says “sense of a self-representation on Facebook being unmediated and a reality TV self-representation being heavily mediated. Instead, I argue that, since self-representation is always mediated, the three dimensions of institutional, textual and cultural mediation enable us to address in detail the question of how these processes of mediation work for any example”


Resource Book

This text I find funny as a source. Its about males and females texting with emojis. Texting because it is more convenient but it is easier to small talk as well.

Part two:

This can be used in my paper when it states interpersonal communication motives. It explores how college students use emoji motives to talk.2

Paper presented at a meeting or conference

This is a  social media research paper studying social interactions and how emojis express commonly used emotions and feelings. To connect this to my final paper it will benefit my argument of it being interpersonal communication online.


Part two:

“approximately 15% of tweets include emojis.” (Preisendorfer 37).


Pages from Book.

I chose this Due to its helpfulness on describing why people use emojis in reference to my topic of emojis being interpersonal communication online.
