Abstract: This study examines the growing relationship between media, religion and public opinion in Kenya in light of growing terrorism threats that have largely been attributed to religion. The one religion that has featured prominently in this discussion is Islam. While the media has been relentless is labeling Islam using phrases such as religious extremists, fundamentalists, radical clerics and others, terror linked groups have equally used the media and religion to legitimize their cause. This characterization has inevitably influenced public perception for better or worse. Thus, this study will examine the prevalence of eight media frames in news stories published by The Daily Nation and The Standard, two Kenyan newspapers. In addition, valence framing of Islam will be examined. Constructed week samples will be used to generate news stories to be content analyzed. Public opinion polls will be used to measure public perception on these issues.

Abstract: Through performance autoethnography, the author presents the story of her first return as an academic to the campus where she spent six years during the late 1960s, first as an undergraduate and then as a graduate student in Spanish literature. She explores the fluidity of time and space she encountered as her thoughts moved between two eras. She grounds her memories in the turbulent events of the ‘60s, interwoven with her sense of finding the self she had left behind when she abandoned her dream of becoming a Spanish professor. She examines her return to the campus as a return to her intellectual roots, a discovery that her way of perceiving the world had a home, one she had not previously experienced in the academic world. Writing as inquiry (Richardson & St. Pierre, 2005), she “arrive[d] where [she] started/And [knew] the place for the first time” (T. S. Eliot, 1942).
