How Propaganda Works
Yale philosophy professor Jason Stanley will explore how propaganda influences the way we think and feel about public issues. Not reserved for totalitarian regimes of the past, propaganda affects ideology today. We will look at examples of how, over time, propaganda has driven opinion and impacted policy.*
