I am going to write an essay about a topic of my choice.
I have selected to apply the Securization theory on the question of extreme right wing voters perception of immigrant as an existential threat. (Why and how question)
I am going to collect speeches, documents from the actors that are shaping the immigrants as existential threats.
Is this the best way to go about in answering the why and how (actors --> securization --> immigrants --> voters --> threat).
What methods would you recommend to go along with theory (Discourse An?, Text any?, case study? and so on)?
First time writing an essay of this length so any help would be valuable!
