Pt I. Article/Podcast/Film Reflection. For this first participation activity, choose a major theme from your articles, films and podcasts that you find interesting and important (this theme, or big idea can straddle a couple of related articles, or you can dig deep with one big idea from one of the articles, films or podcast), tell us all about that big theme or idea, and tell us why you think that is important for us to keep in mind as we proceed with our learning in this course and beyond. Your reflection can be about one substantial paragraph for this part. Pt II. Quote Reflection. You also have a list of short historic quotes on history, the writing of history and remembering (“Until lions have their own historians, the hunter will always be glorified,” for example). Choose one quote that resonates with you (that you like or that you find meaningful) and tell us why you think it is important for our learning going forward. One paragraph for this part as well (two paragraphs total for both) QUOTES: 1) ““Until lions have their own historians, the hunter will always be glorified” Ethiopian proverb 2) Our past is only a little less uncertain than our future, and like the future, it is always changing, always revealing and concealing.” Daniel Boorstin, Hidden History 3) “Our only duty to history is to rewrite it.” Oscar Wilde 4) “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” William Faulkner Requiem for a Nun (Act I, Scene III) (referring to, for example, the legacy of slavery -something from the past- into modern times) 5) “Getting History wrong is part of being a nation” Ernest Renan 6) “The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it” Flannery O’Connor 7) Benedict Anderson argues that part of being a nation is “organized remembering and deliberate forgetting.” What do you think he means and what do you think? 8) “The truth shall set you free, but first it’ll piss you off.” Gloria Steinem 9) “If you think you think you already have the answer or the truth, it keeps you from learning.” David Henry Hwang, playwright 10) “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not to their own facts.” Daniel Patrick Moynihan Articles/film clips/podcast: *“The Secret Death of Pete Ray” (short LA Times article), **“How your brain tricks you into believing ‘fake news’ (Links to an external site.),” Time, 8-9-18 (Important! see short video, 3 min.) *See Film clip “‘Enabling it to Happen Again’: How Charlottesville Led to the Capitol Attack (Links to an external site.)” (1/26/21, PBS) *Podcast: “‘Disinformation Laundering’ Got Us Here (Links to an external site.)” (Context & Analysis; Pro-Trump Assault on US Capitol on 1/6/21 and disinformation: Q Anon, “Stop the Steal”…) by Marketplace, 1/12/21. *“How Youtube Radicalized Brazil (Links to an external site.)” by Max Fisher, NYT, 8-11-2019 (algorithms facilitate disinformation) *“Sort Fact from Fiction Online with Lateral Reading (Links to an external site.)” (to ask ‘who is behind this information?’) (3 min video) *“The Confederacy Was an Antidemocratic, Centralized State (Links to an external site.),” by Professor Stephanie McCurry, Atlantic, 6/2020 (this is historical context for what the Confederacy stood and fought for; helps to answer why Confederate flags were being waved around in Charlottesville in 2017 and the Capitol 1/20/21). OR: *“Confederate Statues and ‘Our’ History (Links to an external site.)” by Professor Eric Foner, NYT 8/2017, (context; statues as expressions of power). (Either one of these two on historical context on Confederacy) **“At Los Angeles Toppling of Junipero Serra Statute, Activists Want Full History Told (Links to an external site.) ,” LAT 6/20 (raises questions about who is memorialized, and the ‘erasure’ of native peoples from history & public spaces)
