Barzakh Spring 2015 Issue: "Rage"
If "a picture is worth a thousand words," it is worth considering the amount of language acquisition that could be achieved through the use of pictures, paintings, and photography. To non-native or ESOL speakers, the value and effects of this imagery and, by extension, the use of role playing, and portraying scenarios could be an incredible boon in English language learning. For example, explaining the difference between the words "house" and "home" can be more easily expressed and internalized by depictions and creations of various images.

-the kinds of spaces in which violence and/or death are figured
-death and/or violence as metaphors for religious experience
-the rhetorical strategies deployed to use religion as a justification for sectional, racial, and territorial violence
-how struggles for political representation are waged via religious representations, and the connotations that accompany particular religious traditions.
