Different Study Approaches

I chose to represent the concept that Islam, as all religions, should be considered from many different approaches. This is a vital concept, because of the amount of religious illiteracy that is so apparent in American culture. In my design I tried to highlight the Cultural-Studies Approach, a concept that was a big focus for the course. It is important that people understand that Islam, like all religions, is embedded in context. One person’s actions can not be explained by their religion alone, something that media outlets seem incapable of understanding. Also, through this method of studying people can see that religion is not timeless or monolithic. My design shows these ideas in a clear, colorful diagram, that provides examples of the different approaches.

I chose to create a graphic design because i believe it conveys my message in a clear succinct way. The medium is very accessible and easily spread; for example by sharing the image on Facebook or posting it onto a website. This is great way to reach my target audience, which would be college students. I chose to focus on students my own age, because I feel like they are the most open to new ideas and the most willing to change their views. I think this is because college students are actively in the pursuit of knowledge, and because of age. Once older, people can become close-minded; it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks as they say. And younger people may not fully understand the issues, or may be too closely influenced by parents and teachers to really form their own opinions.

    This is a good design. So many people still don’t understand how and what to take from religion. everyone’s approach is different. I love music and it makes more sense to me with lyrics. this site has good lyrics for all songs main hoon hero tera
