INTST 328W Political Metaphors (4)

This course provides an opportunity for students to critically interrogate the use of metaphors in politics, civic communication, and global discourse. Metaphors often are deployed by a variety of societal actors to frame societal issues, shape policy debates, influence public discourse, and persuade government officials, non-governmental actors, and the population at large to act in specified ways. Through readings, in-class discussion, and extended writing students will investigate metaphors in politics and civic communication and their role in policy matters and ethical debates.
