About

This Propagandas: How human beliefs are controlled course from Erasmus University Rotterdam intends to introduce students to the many different forms of propaganda which are shaping our lives. Public relations, Public diplomacy, Political communication, Social media, and Psychological Operations will be studied using theory, but also numerous historical and contemporary case studies. The course will be based on my research, notably the two books I published on propaganda, and also previous courses I gave in various universities about propaganda. Erasmus University is the only university where I do not have a course yet on propaganda.

Learning outcomes
After completion of this course, participants will be able to understand propaganda and its derivatives, to spot and critically assess the various forms in which propaganda occurs and to use major techniques in propaganda. The main goal is to contribute to a more informed citizenship, yet the course can also contribute to an education in strategic mass communication.
Partners involved during the summer course
A collaboration with journalistic organizations and instititutes for foreign affairs and political relations such as NGIZ and ProDemos could be considered for this course.
