Anne Kosseff is a writer and editor in New York City who is curious about the way that media language affects our perceptions of world events and our ideas about how to ethically respond to those events. She has a B.A. in political science from Grinnell College in Iowa and created her own M.A. curriculum in media analysis through NYU’s Draper Interdisciplinary Program in Humanities and Social Thought. She started this blog to expand on her master’s thesis, which explored newspaper descriptions of death in war and their possible impacts on political decision-making.
