This blog started as a challenge on Facebook. The goal was to visit a media source of a different country everyday and read spend five minutes reading the local news stories affecting that country. The intention is to broaden our perspectives of the world.
This site is written from an American perspective, but it strives to give Americans a unique view of news from around the world. We hope to make the news simple and provoking, giving readers a chance to explore on their own.
Theoretically, the US media crafts an agenda of international news based on tragedy or politics. Our collective subconscious of the world begins to take the form of fear and xenophobia. The goal of International Convergence is to help our understanding and context of world events.
