The Wolf Pack: How Terministic Screens can Perpetuate Mass Violence

Blog created by Isabel Parham for ENG 210:  Rhetoric and Writing.

This blog post examines how Kenneth Burke’s theory of terministic screens can perpetuate mass violence. The post discusses four white, male perpetrators of mass shootings and analyzes how the media’s classification of these men as “lone wolves” actually contributes to our nation’s mass violence epidemic.
