  1. Hello again Virinichi! This looks good, and I see that you have found many connections to New Media. Some of these would be fascinating to study this summer!!!

    I’m wondering about the first few though:

    Poverty: How is poverty in third world countries compared to first world? How far is someone willing to go to eradicate Poverty? What kind of conditions do impoverished countries’ governments operate? How does conflict raise poverty? Can education lead to the eradication of poverty?

    War: Do religious militants fear nothing until they reach their goals? How are kids brainwashed from a young age and then potentially become martyrs to earn money for their families? How can any kinds of war solve any issues? Do only the dead see the end of war?

    Workers Rights in Brazil: How is the situation ruining the country with FIFA World Cup being played there now?

    Here, you don’t seem to be looking at the topics through the lens of new media.
