Study Diary 4

I am now taking a more critical approach to the topic researching the different theories about it. What especially grabbed my attention is how the media went about representing the people in involved and the whole scandal in general. They seem to direct the attention from a systematic problem to a few individuals.

I have found a book called “Security and the War on Terror” which approaches Lynndie Englands’s representation in the media and her role at Abu Ghraib in a feminist approach. It found this book very useful. It also mentions Jessica Lynch, another high-profile American soldier that was seen as the complete opposite of England. The book talks about how this was done by the media, and what messages it’s trying to get across.

I’m also going to look at the story from a whole different angle by putting together a blog about what the prisoners told the media about the torture and what they have been through.
