New Class on 9/11 at Berkeley City College Fall 2007!

Come see this great 9/11 course and speaker series at Berkeley City College this Fall!

History 47- Critical Thinking in History, Instructor Mickey S. Huff
Tue/Thur 2:30-4pm, 3 units, CSU tranfer, section V0726

Topic: America, 9/11, and the War on Terror: Foreign/Domestic Policy, Media, and Propaganda

Come discuss and debate the recent past in America by viewing one of the most tumultuous events of our times...September 11th, 2001!

*Learn logical argumentation and writing skills while avoiding common fallacies
*Consider bias and objectivity in formation of opinion
*Discern fact from fiction in research and analysis
*Understand possible connections between past and present
*Examine the role of current news media as the rough draft of history
*Think about the shaping of public opinion and the democratic process
*Deconstruct the historically defining events of September 11th, 2001
*Ask critical questions and realize that there may not always be one answer to these:

-Why does history matter and how did we get to this point in time?
-How will 9/11 be seen historical terms?
-What actually happened on that fateful day?
-What are the official views and the alternatives that challenge?
-Why do the government studies all contradict themselves?
-What are the unanswered questions and where are the answers?
-What are “conspiracy theories” and why should we care about some of them?
-What are the views of Arab Americans on the War on Terror”
-How does the rest of the world view America post 9/11?
-How has 9/11 been used as a pretext and propaganda tool by government?
-How has 9/11 affected the rule of law internationally and domestically?
-What is the grand narrative of 9/11 and why should we challenge it?
-Does history repeat itself...or does it just rhyme?

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” George Orwell, 1984. And Orwell today? Rolling in his grave.

Be an active agent in the making of history by being aware in the present. Knowledge is power! Shape your own future! Come think for yourselves, otherwise, someone else will gladly do it for you! Class begins August 23rd. Enroll today!
