International Issues Paper Instructions– Fall 2019 Anthro 41a/ IS 11 You are required to turn in a one paragraph summary explaining which recent international event you INTEND to write your paper on to your TA on the evening of Nov. 5 (the night of the midterm). Please be sure there are a sufficient number of newspaper articles from different sources available to support your topic choice. The purpose of this project is to further develop your critical thinking, research skills and to encourage you to delve into an international issue of your choosing. The project consists of two components: a collection of at least four current newspaper articles related to a single international event of your choosing, and 2000 word summary-analysis paper devoted to the articles you selected for this project. You will also need to include a “works cited” or bibliography page along with hard copies of each of your news articles when you submit your completed essay. All materials for this project are due to your TA in lecture on Tues., Nov. 19, 2018. Late papers will lose 10 points for each day they are late. Purpose of the Paper (Examining the Production of Contemporary Historiography) – The goal of this paper is to allow you to analyze how “historiography” is an ongoing process largely influenced by the news media. History is a subjectively generated product. History incorporates the biases and viewpoints of those who produce it. The news media today is a key source in providing us with “meaning” connected to newsworthy “historical” events. In fact, the news media is in fact a major part of the process that generates “history.” Although news media reporters and editors frequently claim that they are presenting “just the facts,” the way in which these “facts” are presented often carry a number of biases that strongly influence public perception and interpretations of current events. For this assignment, you are going to pick a specific, single international event and examine how this event is presented by different news media sources from around the globe. You are being asked to compare the articles you have selected for this assignment and discuss how the differing ways in which the event you have chosen actually reflects more than the “plain” facts, but rather reveals complex layers of social values, assumptions, biases, beliefs and meanings by each of your articles’ authors. Selecting a Topic 1) First, select a single international news event that has occurred in the past 60 days. Since the purpose of the paper is to address international issues, the event you select for this assignment must have occurred OUTSIDE of the United States (although the issue may INCLUDE the US as one of the agents involved). There are numerous current news issues to choose from, but for this project I strongly suggest that you choose an event of a political or social nature. If you are struggling to find a topic for this paper, you may want to check out respected news sources online such a CNN, BBC, Al-Jazeera, etc. to get a sense of current news events that are relevant to this assignment. 2) Your topic should be a single, recent event, not an ongoing issue. For example, you might choose to discuss a recent, single action that took place in Yemen or Afghanistan or Syria or the Central African Republic, or Palestine, etc., but you may NOT choose the overall, ongoing violence in Yemen or Afghanistan or Syria or The Central African Republic, or Palestine, etc., as your topic. For example, you could choose a single, recent protest, or meeting or act of violence that has recently occurred in Syria as your event for this paper, but you may not choose the overall ongoing civil war in Syria as your topic. A recent election (outside of the US), a newly approved law or act of legislation (outside of the US), an international political meeting, the signing of a treaty or international agreement, a single act of violence, a recent missile test, a recent day of protest or a recent military action that took place on a single day would all be possible topics for this paper. However, any paper that tries to address the entirety of the Syrian civil war, war refugees, peace in the Middle East, Aids in Africa, poverty in India, international human rights, human trafficking in Southeast Asia or drug trafficking in Mexico, etc. are all too broad for this assignment and are not appropriate topics for this class. You need to choose something much smaller – a single action or event that occurred on a specific day – as a topic for this assignment. For example, you could pick some relatively small, particular portion of an issue to focus on, such as a reaction to a controversial law that has just been passed, or a particular act of violence that recently occurred, or a recent meeting between heads of state or a recent foreign election, or a recent military intervention, etc. Also, please do not choose a sporting event, a natural disaster, a health crisis or an outbreak of disease for this assignment. You may NOT write your paper about an event that occurred in the US, such as the recent confirmation of Bret Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court or the #MeToo movement, since this would be a domestic issue and you must choose an international topic for this assignment. Selecting Articles 3) You will need to have collected at least four newspaper articles on the SAME EVENT from DIFFERENT nations. You are only permitted to use one article from a US newspaper source and your other three article choices should be on the same event but each one must be selected from a DIFFERENT newspaper and from a DIFFERENT nation. In other words, each article you choose will come from a different nation’s newspaper, but all four articles must still be focused on the same event and should have been published within 48 hours of each other. This will enable you to distinguish how a particular event is presented differently in various newspapers from around the world. You may use online versions of newspaper articles. The articles may not be more than 60 days old when you submit your final paper. Please do not use op-ed pieces for this assignment (do not use articles from either the opinion or editorial section of a newspaper). You will need to submit hard copies of each of your newspaper articles when you submit your completed assignment. Conclusion: Write a 2000 word Project Summary-Critique 4) WRITE a 2000 minimum word (double spaced, medium size 10 –12 font, standard margins) in which you provide a summary and comparison of the different articles you have selected for this assignment. You will search for differing emphases and patterns between your articles, and you will consider the differing impact each individual article might make on its reader depending on how the issue is presented and handled by each author. You are to examine and critique the differing ways in which the issue is being presented in your articles. Also, for this paper, you need to consider how the news reports of today become the “historiography” of tomorrow. This is an opportunity for you to think critically about how the news is presented to the reader in each newspaper. Do you have a sense that certain “facts” are being emphasized in one article while those same facts are dismissed or ignored or presented somewhat differently by the authors in some of your other selected articles? Do you have a sense that only one particular side of the issue is being presented in a particular article? If so, why do you think this is happening? In what ways has the event you have selected for this assignment been reported differently in each of your articles? (Keep in mind that these differences may be subtle). In what way might these differences influence the reader to draw a different conclusion about the event? A particular new article will often (though not always) tend to focus on only side of an issue. Which sides of the issue do you see being presented in your different articles? Why do you think this might this be happening? In what way might ethnocentric perspectives or national interests be influencing how the issue is being presented differently in each of your articles? Do you see any biases built into the way that the issue is being presented or reported by the authors of your articles? Finally, what have you learned through this process? What have you come to understand about the production of “news” and the power of the news media over the reader by comparing these different articles? You must include a hard copy of all of your newspaper articles with your final paper. You must include a bibliography/reference page with your final paper. You must include a word count on your paper. This paper and all accompanying materials, including hard copies of your articles and a works cited page, is due to your TA in lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019. This paper is worth 200 points (20% of the total possible points for this course). Late papers will lose ten points for each day they are submitted late. ****You are required to submit a one paragraph, TYPED, summary of what you plan to write your paper to class on Nov. 6 (the evening of the midterm).

Georgia Hartman Anthropology 41A/IS 11 20 July 2015 Word Count: 2443; Word Count (essay only): 2267 Influencing History: The Deceptions behind News Reporting Sir Winston Churchill once stated that, “History is written by the victors.” After being introduced to the definition “Historiography” for the first time a few weeks ago, I immediately associated it with Churchill’s profound quote that I reminisced from my high school history class. Historiography without a doubt, incorporates a number of biases from the author(s) that write it, whether the events happen to be reported accurately or not. For example, a physical newspaper is a form of communication that links the past, present, and future through text that is written by an author that may incorporate his/her biases. As a result, the general public is rarely given the pure truth about events occurring in the past as well as the future. The idea of recognizing that most of our news reports may not be historically accurate can be shocking because most of the population tends to generally believe that everything in the news is usually factual without any degree of bias. In writing this paper, I will demonstrate that bias in historiography occurs more often than intended, whether it may be intentional or not. In order to support my thesis, the international event reported on by different countries that I will be analyzing is the Formosa Fun Coast explosion that occurred in New Taipei, Taiwan. During the evening of June 27th 2015, the New Taipei district of Taiwan that surrounds the city Taipei (the capital of Taiwan) was hosting a “Color Play Asia” event that included partying and dancing to live music at an open air venue. Over 1,000 partygoers (including many Ou 2 from different countries) attended the event in order to take part in the various festivities being hosted. To support the “Color Play Asia” theme of the event, large air cannons and leaf blowers helped spread large amounts of colored powder that was spread within the attendees throughout the day. Made from finely ground corn starch and different hues of food coloring, the colored powder was assumed to be harmless and safe to use, but also loosely labeled as flammable under certain conditions by the manufacturer. Reportedly around 8:30 P.M. (BBC Asia, June 28, 2015), the huge clouds of colored powder lingering in the air had ignited unexpectedly due to an uncertain source. Following the ignition of the powder were large explosions that scorched the dance floor while setting anything that the powder came in contact to on fire. Due to the humidity and sweat, partygoers were completely covered with the colored powder when it ignited and as a result, nearly 500 individuals suffered severe burns to large portions of their bodies. The even more unfortunate attendees that inhaled large amounts of the colored powder also suffered respiratory issues due to lung and throat damage. In the end, over half of the injured were taken into intensive care units located in the northern Taiwan region instead of regular hospital wards due to the severity of the burns. Shortly after the inferno, the news quickly spread amongst neighboring countries as “the worst incidence of mass injury in the history of New Taipei city.” (China Daily, June 29, 2015). Among the affected were American, British, and Asian nationals and as a result, different countries released their own breaking news reports to the public in articles where it is clearly evident that there is bias in order to bend the facts to favor their own respective audiences. For my first source, I will be analyzing a news article originating in Taiwan, which is the country where the explosion took place. One of the most important quotes I read in this article was that, according to the Central News Agency in Taiwan, “Up to (as many as) 4,000 tickets Ou 3 were sold for the event, not including early bird packages” (Taiwan News Online, June 29, 2015). Surprisingly, Taiwan’s article is the only country out of the four that even mentions anything about the total number of attendees at the event. On the other hand, one detail that every news report about this event includes is the total number of injured, an estimation of around 500 individuals (Taiwan News Online, June 29, 2015). When I personally read this article, I ended up thinking to myself that “Oh, 500 out of the 4,000+ attendees suffering injuries doesn’t seem nearly as bad as I expected when I was reading the other news articles.” The inclusion of a rough estimate for the fraction of number of injured attendees to the total number of attendees does, in my opinion, downsize the severity of the event after reading the other articles. Neither the BBC/Reuters, CNN, nor the China Daily News include any information about the total number of attendees at the Color Play Asia event. Appropriately, the overall shock value of the event is more intense in the articles that don’t mention the total number of participants. The second big factor that I noticed about the Taiwanese article is that it doesn’t include any information about Li Pei-yun (CNN, June 29,2015), a 20-year-old female that unfortunately suffered third-degree burns to over 90% of her body who also died on the same day but before this article was published. Li Pei-yun was the first death reported from the explosions at the water park, and there is no doubt that the article would have had a much more negative tone to it with the inclusion of the death. I’ll admit that the author Jay Chen of Taiwan News does a really good job at establishing an accurate representation of the damage that was dealt overall. Looking at the bigger picture, there really shouldn’t be any surprise as to why Taiwan’s version of the event establishes a much less severe than the news reports from other countries. The Taiwanese media is (understandably) trying to soften the gravity of the Color Play Asia disaster in order to make it seem like the number of injuries weren’t as bad to the future Ou 4 generations that decide to research the details of such a catastrophe. Overall, the article originating in Taiwan is obviously biased towards helping the country preserve as much as its own respectability as possible by projecting the “best” possible situation to the reader. For my second example, I am considering an U.S. article straight from CNN that reports on the crisis overseas from where it actually occurred. What I first noticed from CNN’s article that differed from the rest was that it included a lot of quoted dialogue (CNN, June 29, 2015), from either event officials, relatives of the injured participants, or witnesses. One of the quotes that impacted me the most was, “‘All of her skin was gone. Her hands were shaking… and she kept calling for me,’ her mother said.” It surprised me how the addition of dialogue throughout the news report helped me achieve a much more personal relationship with the burn victims. Unlike Taiwan News, China Daily News, and the BBC/Reuters, CNN does a great job of playing with human emotions. The bias with CNN’s report is more toward a negative perspective of the situation, since most of the dialogue provided supports the gruesomeness of the crisis. Another difference I noticed with CNN’s report was that the other half of their content (other than the dialogue) were details and background on what actions the government and event officials were taking. Unlike the news articles from other countries, CNN reveals that the manufacturer of the colored powder distributed throughout Color Play Asia events is clearly labeled as “flammable and shouldn’t be used in closed spaces or under high temperatures.” (CNN, June 29, 2015). These details are important because it shows that the event coordinators should have known that the powder was a fire hazard especially in the conditions that the event took place. The everyday reader of this article would most likely be biased towards the idea that the event staff was to blame for the explosions, because no warning was publicly announced that the colored powder was highly flammable. Ou 5 The third source that I will be analyzing originates from a country that historically is not on the best of terms with Taiwan, which leads to myself already expecting some form of bias that will try to create the worst possible scenario of the disaster. Long story short, Taiwan fled China in order to establish a democratic government in 1949, and over half a century later, China still does not recognize Taiwan as an independent country and government. As a result, the Chinese news article is reasonably written to bring out details that affect the Chinese population. For example, China Daily is the only one of the four countries that mentions, “Among the injured are two students from the Chinese mainland (Chen Lingdan and Zhuang Chujun), five from Hong Kong,” (China Daily, June 29, 2015). Although there were multiple participants from other different countries including Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Africa, China Daily is the only news source that mentions the countries affected by the disaster. Not to mention in their case, the author specifically focuses on the interviews from Chinese students that were injured for the majority of the news article. It is evident that the author is biased towards favoring the Chinese audience in telescoping the number of countries influenced to ma …
