Course ID:POLS 4551E. 3 hours.
Course Title:Political Propaganda and American Politics
Explores the concept of propaganda from its origins and historical development to its examination by research scientists. We begin with understanding the definitions of propaganda and how it differs from persuasion or academic argument. Then we examine the early history of propaganda and its transition to a generally negative concept. How does today's fragmented media system and the avalanche of new and social media influence the continued use of propaganda? Have the techniques changed?
