Global Communication looks at how power operates in and through communication systems and how the strategic use of communication by governments and social movements works. It examines how propaganda and disinformation are constructed and transmitted in the digital age. The course also examines the rise and role of celebrity power in contemporary culture, in a world increasingly dominated by the rapid uptake of social media and an upsurge of the ‘platform power’ of large multinational IT corporations.
