Readings will serve as a primer to understand the transmission and communication of visual culture across borders and oceans as well as how its interpretation varies according to the historical context in which it is articulated.

Judgment, and therefore choice, is at the center of ethical con- duct.

The nineteenth and twentieth centuries have been periods of intense change, as Middle Eastern nations have emerged and states have been broken down by internal and external forces. A Marine in battle fears disgracing himself by running.
The plan called for two Marine assaults; one to board the Mayaguez, the other to land on Koh Tang Island where the U.

Rather than outward marks of greatness, they are often deeply buried, and, in many cases, one must look closely to see an individual's inner strengths. How does this border—and the countless reasons why it is crossed every day—contribute to our idea of home?
