RHET 240W Propaganda: 21st Century (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. The course will consider some combination of North Korean propaganda, Islamaphobia, “fake news,” Neo-Nazi discourse, political ads, and the anti-Vax campaign. Students will be asked to consider the ethical implications of propaganda use. The course is writing centered and discussion based.
