Identity in times of post-truth
|Instructor||Danniel Gobbi Fraga da Silva|
Mi, 14-16 Uhr (synchron + asynchron)
This seminar will address the question of the role of myths, misinformation and disinformation in collective identity building, especially national identities. The didactic approach of this discipline is based on the combination of theoretical discussion and empirical analysis. The participants will have the opportunity to co-create the syllabus and will receive a crash-course training on content analysis. As the discipline will be staged in 4 parts: conception, theoretical approach, data analysis and discussion of the results, students enrolled in this discipline are required to have special commitment and take part in all of the 4 stages. In the end, the participants will also reflect together on the role of theory in empirical approaches.
