People in power (or not) have tried to change public opinion using a variety of mediums. This course will look at recent (from the past 200 years or so) examples in art, music, newspapers, speeches, movies and TV, and social media. For example, the effect of the Communist Party Social Realism art form and why was "This Land is Your Land" written by Woody Guthrie? Is Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech more powerful today than when it was delivered in 1963? We will consider these questions and more.
