The Merchant Of Venice At Umass: An Exploration In Collaboration And Representation, Elizabeth L. Pangburn Nov 2015

Secondly, I will show that without tandem movement from the creative team, no rehabilitation or subversion is possible.

The most watched Africa-related video from 50 NGOs were selected, downloaded and analyzed. After continuous re-watching of a 3.5 hour long set of visual data tree themes emerged.
