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?
