Taught By: Nina Khrushcheva
Section: A

CRN: 14345

Credits: 3

This course examines political and cultural propaganda and its symbolism mostly during and after the Cold War. Significant focus will be placed on American ideology, or “Americanism” — which has been represented through various media such as: advertising, press, television, film, and now through social media. Concentrating on various US presidencies, its use in political messaging, we will survey campaign election coverage in the US and ask: have recent presidencies been created by the media? How are the current US elections 2024 compared to the previous campaigns? We will look at other elections from around the world and further investigate the role of various types of media, their influence on political propaganda and public relation strategies. Ultimately, we will determine how new technologies are delivering political and ideological messages without the constraint of borders or time. We will also broaden our scope to focus on instances of global propaganda, looking at the tactics and methods used by China, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and so on.
