ENG 4U 2011: Media and Violence

Before we begin, I need you to understand something. I am still torn by this subject….I don’t know what I think.

We will consider the following today:

  • What does the media tend to cover?
  • There are many famous images from the 20th century. Why are these not among them?
  • What should we make of the kind of violence we tend to consume? What conventions do we look for?

As we discuss these topics, ask yourself the following: is your response to this kind of violence  different because of our starting point for this discussion?
