Soviet and Russian Propaganda (Prof. Anna Brodsky)

3 students are sought for a project on “Soviet and Russian Propaganda ” with Prof. Anna Brodsky that will begin on 6/3/2024 and last for 10 weeks

Project Description:

I plan to embark on a book-length project examining the history of Russian propaganda. The project aims to explore how both Soviet and contemporary Russian propaganda systematically targets individuals’ sense of agency and autonomy, reducing them to pawns in the overarching agenda of the ruling elite to seize and maintain power. I will argue that the contemporary ultranationalist and imperialist Russian propaganda owes a significant debt to its Soviet predecessor.
