Propaganda

Summer Institute for k-12 Teachers

June 22 - 26, 2020

5 online sessions, 10:00 - 11:30 each day

Each session will include a presentation by a scholar-expert, participant discussion, and a Q & A period.

What are the features, uses, and histories of propaganda? What techniques have governments and political movements used to construct and convey messages?  How is propaganda related to the construction of national (or other) identities? Is propaganda entirely culture-specific, or are there universal features of this mode of communication? Perhaps most important - where is the line between propaganda and other types of communication and expression?

As we head into another presidential election season, the ORIAS Summer Institute for k-12 teachers offers teachers an exploration of propaganda from different places and times. This program will draw on a variety of disciplines and will feature numerous examples of propaganda from around the world.

This institute is open to k-12 teachers across disciplines. There is no cost to attend.
