JWST 40.02 Israel and Palestine: The Media as a Battlefield

The role of the media in violent conflict situations has become an increasingly critical area of study and research over the past generation. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the role of the media within that conflict will serve as the central focus of this course. Comparing current conflicts to previous wars – including wars such as Korea and Vietnam, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Chechnya - we find that they relatively limited in scope. Yet, while violent conflicts in almost every part of the world, including Asia, Africa, Europe (the Ukraine and Russia), most of the world’s attention focuses on the Middle East.

Distributive and/or World Culture

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
