You will research a current cultural, social, economic, environmental, or political challenge facing the Sahara region, one that has an international or global dimension. You will examine the way this challenge is represented in three different forms of news media: text, photo, and video. Your analysis should focus on the ways these representations of your topic confirm and challenge Said’s theory of Orientalism. Given the way Orientalism manifests (or does not manifest) in the data you examine, what does it say about the nature of imperialism today?
