Course Description

This online course is free and explores the basic building blocks of political views such as freedom, community peace, justice, justice, and choice. These words can mean very different things to different people. Individuals, protest movements, and whole states have been known to go to war in order to claim freedom. We will be exploring the meanings of words across time and space over five weeks. We will examine how and why we become political and how propaganda and political ideology pick up on the symbols, words and images we use to express our convictions and feelings.

The University of Nottingham's Centre for the Study of Ideologies, as well as the British Library's 2013 exhibit Propaganda Power and Persuasion, provide academic expertise for the course. We will be looking at examples from various periods and contexts during the 20th and 21st century, as well as how propaganda can be used to promote good causes in the areas of identity, belonging, freedom, and responsibility. You will have the opportunity to communicate your views, beliefs, and experiences with fellow learners and upload images to an online archive. This will allow you to show others what freedom, community, or protest means to you. This allows you to join a global discussion, which brings together people from all walks of politics. It helps us all understand where our differences come from.
