Audience and Context: Your instructor and peers at the University of Minnesota in your Communication Ethics course (unless further specified)
A literature review is an overview of research in a given area that helps people understand the area as well as current gaps in the research or further areas of study. The authors provide an overview of the current research on a particular topic and concepts to help the audience familiarize themselves with the materials so they can make an argument about how their future research adds to the understanding of those concepts.
