I need an explanation for this History question to help me study.


This is the public narratives I want to focus on.

The requirements are attached below.

Once you have identified a narrative, your job is to break it down, explain its parts, suggest why it is circulating today—in short, to analyze it. Your assignment will take three parts.

First, present the narrative. This means, as briefly as possible, summarizing the narrative and explaining the basic questions of where and when (does the narrative appear).

Second, break down the narrative, analyzing it. Ask yourself: why does it appear in the medium (social media, news, entertainment) where I found it? Who is invested in producing and distributing this narrative, and why? What assumptions does it reveal about refugeehood? What terms, ideas, or definitions does the narrative rely on? You do not need to answer all these questions, but they should help get you started.

Third and finally, suggest why it is significant that we understand this publicly circulating narrative. What do we learn through your analysis? What further questions does your analysis raise?
