Conflict representation theory/study This research project aims at unpacking conflict representations, therefore it is essential to understand the techniques and strategies implemented when representing conflict. Political leaders invest time and resources in in order to promote official frames to media (Gadi Wolfsfeld, Paul Frosh & Maurice T. Awabdy 2008:401). Galtung 1998, Manoff 1998 & Wolfsfeld 2004 cited by Wolfsfeld et al (2008:401) explains that the ways in which the news media represent conflicts “are also likely to have a significant influence on any subsequent attempts at conflict resolution”. Annelore Deprez and Karin Raeymaeckers (2010:92) explain that the “selection and construction of news items, the picture that we see of ‘the foreign’, is a filtered, distorted, manipulated, one-sided and simplified image”. Looking at the techniques used by the media one may understand how this statement is given substance.
They should understand the consequences the events had on our country. Lastly, be knowledgeable enough of the techniques used and prepared to prevent something like this from ever happening again. Historians should interpret and disperse the first-hand accounts that are compiled into the book 100 Years of Lynchings, to help Americans understand exactly what happened from 1865 to the late 1900s.

With the help of logic and personal experience to create this semi self-guide on dating, the author shed light on how social classes can change the way people think and even act. I believe that this topic is super important in today’s world, especially when there is racial insulair intolerance and ignorance. However, the author did not change my view in any way. I do not feel that judging someone based on their race is necessarily a bad thing, unless you are accusing them of a crime or an illegal activity. Someone of the story upes Diaz mentioned is true, but not for all cases.
Both the Heritage of World Civilization and An Imperial World book assists the learner understand the lineage of significant events along with the leadership and major conflicts that occurred. The Underdogs is a novel by Mariana Azuela that complements the story pointed out by the aforementioned literatures. I learned a lot from the reading material and the Tegrity sessions, but the Underdogs novel, gave me an inside view on what it was to be a part of the Mexican revolution. This first person story brings to light on the characters and viewpoints of the people during that time. I can really appreciate my personal upbringings when compared to the rough lifestyle of Mexicans during that timeline.
In this essay, Benjamin critically assesses the whole historical structure of the law by applying the explicitly Sorelian ideas of violence and the general proletarian strike. However, as I will try to
Foucault seeks to analyze punishment in social context and to examine how changing power relations triggered punishment. As Foucault expresses in his own intent: “This book is intended as a correlative history of the modern soul and of a new power to judge, a genealogy of the present scientific-legal complex from which the power to punish derives its bases, justifications and rules, from which it extends its effects
Also, the account of Lady Juliet d’Orsey provided a perspective that developed the reader’s overall understanding of Robert and the effects of the war away from the battlefield. Comparatively, Marian Turner’s transcripts (at the beginning and end of the novel) play a major role in uncovering the reader’s final judgement of Robert Ross. Altogether, the first, second, and third person narrative styles in the book entail that the truth of Findley’s main character is elusive and meant to be scrutinized. In using multiple voices to tell his story, the author is able to illustrate how war can eclipse, confuse, and complicate already difficult matters. This is clearly seen with the circumstances of Rowena’s death at the beginning of the novel.
The article’s main focus is not to convince people that the American ignorance is a problem, but to inform them that there is a problem, therefore it is an educational article, rather than argumentative. This is supported the last few lines of the article, where the writer admits to not knowing whether the Americans can get rid of their ignorance or not. Despite this he encourages the readers to “start searching for a cure” (page 4, line 80). Mr.

Obviously, the reason why critical scholars could not response to these environments challenges is because the critical tool called ecocriticism had not been coined. But they however, condemned the damage being done to the earth. Wole Soyinka’s Swamp Dwellers, Ayi Kwei Armah’s The Beautiful Once are not Born, Alex La Guma’s A Walk in the Night, Ngugi’s A Grain of Wheat, in addition to the ones mentioned earlier on, also explore the theme of nature, environmental pollution and degradation. And these literary works are a product of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Truly, there might not have been the preponderance of creative works exploring the degradation of the earth in earlier decades, but there were still works that responded energetically to the issue.
