Media Constructions of Peace

High School through College - this kit explores how the people in the United States have perceived antiwar movements over the past 170 years and how the U.S. media has constructed that public perception.

The subject areas covered include U.S. history, African-American studies, labor studies, Latino studies, media studies, Native American studies, peace studies, sociology and women’s studies among many others.
