Media Savvy: Identifying Propaganda
Propaganda comes in many forms: advertising, public relations, journalism, political communication, activism, entertainment and even education. Disinformation, fake news, memes and algorithms are changing how public opinion is manipulated today. How can you navigate the increasingly fine lines between truth and bias?
Join Seekonk Public Library for this virtual program to learn how to recognize, understand, resist, deconstruct and even create propaganda in our digital age. This program is sponsored by Southeastern MA Huddle and free and open to the public.
