As Barack Obama has recently written: “If we do not have the capacity to distinguish what’s true from what’s false, then by definition … our democracy doesn’t work.”
This session will take the form of an interactive workshop where students will learn how to identify, analyse (and even create) propaganda.
Understanding propaganda and manipulation techniques is an increasingly challenging but essential aspect of democratic politics.
This session will introduce students to the historical evolution of propaganda techniques as well as to some of the major ways in which it has impacted on some of the most important political issues of our times.
