How do others see us? How do others see events in the world? This course uses foreign media to look at world issues from a perspective other than that of the American media. We will look at the USA in the foreign media, parallel events in the USA and in other places, items of local concern to foreign lands, and, finally, news in the foreign media deemed interesting in its own right. Sources such as watchingamerica.com will be used along with a wide range of press and media from around the world.
