About this site
The production staff:
The production staff were students enrolled in Journalism 298 (Covering
the Arc of Crisis: From Kabul to Jerusalem), taught at the Graduate School
of Journalism, UC Berkeley in the Spring 2002 semester. The Arc of Crisis
class was a course examining issues of land, religion, nationalism and
terror since the end of the Ottoman Empire. It was intended 1) to give
graduate students in journalism familiarity with the politics of the countries
of the region and 2) to guide them in the use of their new background
knowledge to create a comprehensive web site, making use of the unique
methods of multimedia story-telling. The goal was to create a web site
that would serve as a model for news media, as well as a valuable resource
for the public and educational institutions.
Only the audience will be able to say whether the effort was successful. We welcome your comments.
