How are news stories involving Muslims and violence covered differently than other stories of violence? Do you think that stereotypical representations of minorities in media have shaped public perception? In what way? Make reference to Mickey Mouse Monopoly or Edward Said’s Orientalism here.
How does one go about countering these stereotypical media representations? How would you go about raising awareness and educating others about this issue? Are there real-life examples you could point to of media that is trying to sensitize the public about this issue?
