RHET 235W Propaganda: WWII & Cold War (2)
Propaganda is a word that people often mistakenly associate with what “the other” does rather than what “we” do. This course will introduce theories relevant to the study of propaganda and examine strategies that propagandists employ in their efforts to direct the beliefs and attitudes of their audience. This course will focus on film and cartoon propaganda of WWII and the Cold War, but will not be limited to that era or those media. Students will be asked to consider the ethical implications of propaganda use. The course is writing centered and discussion based.
