Welcome to study of Judaism, Islam and the Media

Welcome to the blog for the Freshman Critical Thinking Seminar exploring Representations and Response related to Judaism, Islam and the Media held at Texas A&M University during Fall 2013. The aim of this class is to will explore Jewish and Muslim groups  relationship to mass and new forms of media. In our readings and discussions online and in the classroom we will explore how Jews and Muslims are represented in popular media and how these framing influence religious communities perceptions and responses to different forms of media.  This blog is a space for student reflection on issues raised in the class as well as the space where you will post your weekly questions and "aha moment" observations on assigned reading. I look forward to a great semester of learning together.  -Dr Heidi Campbell
