Primary Instructor:

Come tell your story, their stories, other stories of the search for peace in the Middle East (and its obstacles) using your webpage-building techniques as if you were on the Internet. This course gives you the opportunity to use your artistry to tell these important stories. Show what has happened in the visual richness of color, imagery, video and film clips integrated with text, music and actual sounds and dialogue. Conflicts, obstacles to peace, may be cultural (religious, ethnic. . .) and social (gender, class. . .) Stories have the most power when they are as accurate as we can recall them. We have developed a web architecture method called GEOMAT to gather together the data. Here you can tell the whole story including maps of places and timelines of events to order the information, qualitative and quantitative, found on the web, in archives, documents, landscape images, data sets, and other places. Familiarity with programs such as DreamWeaver, Adobe Photoshop, GoogleEarth, and GIS is useful but not necessary.
