How does framing differ from suggestion, persuasion or even the presentation of alternative facts? Experience the techniques which convince and how they impact your navigation of the political realm.
What is framing and how does it differ from suggestion, persuasion or even the presentation of alternative facts? How equipped are we to recognise these mechanisms at play in our communication and information environments? And how can we understand this in relation to good old fashioned propaganda? Prof. Hans de Bruijn explores what framing is and what it does. He walks us through the concepts underpinning framing and the techniques which convince. He is joined by a professional actor who will invite you to experience how framing impacts your navigation of the political realm. Join Studium Generale as we update our understanding of propaganda and zoom in on the role of language in tilting political inclinations.
