Welcome to our class blog! We are a small but mighty crew from Western Michigan University’s Lee Honors College on a one-week Study in the States course in Spring, 2017. Our course is exploring the famous American city of San Francisco through the lens of media literacy, with a particular focus on what is left out of news and media coverage. This theme of omission will be applied to each day’s topic of study, from climate change to immigration, from freedom of speech on social media to incarceration, and more.
