Paper Bullets: Propaganda in American History  

Paul Revere may have been our first propagandist... and not because of any midnight ride on a horse. Propaganda – the attempt to sway people to a particular worldview or political position – has played an important role in American history. This course seeks to balance “good” propaganda (Revere, Thomas Paine, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Frank Capra) with the “bad” (“yellow journalism”, Father Coughlin) in literature, visual arts, music, and video. Participants are encouraged to bring an open mind.
