The Politics of Us and Them (reading seminar of the books by Jason Stanley) (FSL) (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Tiago Cerqueira Lazier

Inhalt: Our increasingly interconnected world has increased the opportunities for the democratic politics of open-mindedness and fairness to prosper. Yet, the same networks that allowed for human exchange and understanding have also carried forth a vocal backlash. Unashamedly employing misinformation and propaganda tactics, the far-right politics of us and them have gained traction in many countries in Europe and across the globe. As they mount a challenge to the future of democracy, it’s important to understand how they operate. In this reading seminar, we will try to understand how propaganda and the politics of us and them work, what drives their message and how they operate according to Jason Stanley. Stanley is a renowned philosopher at Yale University, who has brought his expertise in language and epistemology to bear on the problem of the surge of far-right politics worldwide. We will read and analyze together two non-technical books Stanley recently published on the topic: “How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them” and “How Propaganda Works”.
