This free online course introduces learners to current thinking and research on propaganda from political, historical, cultural and other perspectives. In this course, you will discuss your own political values, how you express them and how you identify political beliefs in the world around you. Through films, presentations, and online discussion, you will explore the different ways in which people perceive concepts such as: freedom, law, identity, belonging and personal choice.
The course is developed by the University of Nottingham’s Centre for the Study of Political Ideologies, in partnership with the British Library, and is presented by FutureLearn. The emphasis is on images and objects encountered in daily life, with examples from the British Library’s collections including: political and scientific maps; Chinese popular culture and education; Ministry of Information publications from the Second World War; and campaigning materials produced by the Women’s Suffrage movement.
Course participants come from countries all over the world, with diverse experience from campaigning, government, education, travel and family. No prior qualifications or experience is required to join the course – just an open mind and enthusiasm to explore the political concepts that matter to us the most.
