Analyse the image down below. Discuss the following using these questions to help you think through the image (you do NOT NEED to answer each question, rather they are there as a prompt):
(1) what does this image suggest about ‘security’?
(2) What themes, images and ideas are being represented here?
(3) How do they relate to the idea of ‘security’?
(4) What else is represented in this picture, and how?
(5) Who or what is missing from the image, what is not being shown?
You must refer to some theoretical literature on visual security in this answer., e.g you could look at the visual security literature from the visual security class.

Task 2: Analysis of the speech 1500 words
THE TEXT CAN BE FOUND IN THE NEXT DOCUMENT
THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS ARE GUIDELINES ONLY, they are there to help you think through some issues related to the text. You do not need to answer each question specifically.
What kind of language is used?
Are specific photographs or images used to illustrate the story, and to what effect?
What is the focal point and why?
Who, or what, is missing from the reporting?
How does the news story construct and represent ideas about security, threat, fear and danger?
What is the dominant frame used by the report to represent this issue, and why?
In your discussions, you must draw on one of the theoretical perspectives we covered this semester (e.g. constructivism, gender etc).
You must also use references, and cite your evidence, as well as provide a bibliography at the end. This will demonstrate engagement with literature and show supporting evidence for your arguments – you can hear more about this in the webinar recordings (‘General information about assignments’) above.
