Peace & Conflict Studies: Part Three

[For students: 1) Capturing Reality is a good resource for understanding documentaries as an "art form" 2) I wanted to show you This Is What Democracy Looks Like, but ran out of time, it is a compilation of the footage from a 100+ independent media/journalists covering the 1999 Seattle WTO Protests 3) Manufacturing Consent is a great introduction to Noam Chomsky and the Propaganda Model of the Media--good supplement for thinking about what I have been discussing throughout this section 4) I provided more info on Chomsky and Propaganda 5) linked the previous two Peace & Conflict posts 6) the G20 articles can be found online here and the paper North of Center is a free bi-weekly newspaper that is available around town at the entrance of downtown independent businesses 7) comments/questions can be posted in the comment section of this post and/or feel free to stop by my office OB236B to talk. I really appreciated the level of engagement for this section, thank you!!!]
