Critical Media Literacy in Times of War Website

The Critical Media Literacy in Times of War website can be found here:

Dr. Boler collaborated on this website with graduate students at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. It launched on September 11, 2002.

The site was named Media Literacy Link of the Month by the Action Coalition for Media Education (February 2002), and Web Site of the Day by CounterPunch (April 22, 2003).

The website continues to be widely used by educators and media activists, and is especially recommended for those teaching or studying communications, language arts, media, political science, sociology, and history.

The two primary modules examine The War on Terror, Afghanistan, and U.S. attacks in Iraq in 1991 and 2002.

The site can be accessed as a Flash 6 site or as HTML.

On the site, you will find visually-engaging, extensively researched primary document news material demonstrating contradictory stories told by domestic and international media in reporting on:

-civilian casualties

-effects on sanctions on Iraq

-anti-war protests
