Megan C. Thomas: “Secrecy’s Use: Education, Enlightenment, and Propaganda”

January 26, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Using Mikhail Bakunin’s theorization of authority as a starting point, this talk explores secrecy as a strategy for political enlightenment, and calls attention to earlier conceptions of “propaganda” as education that were lost with the militarization of the term in the twentieth century.

Megan C. Thomas is Associate Professor of Politics at UCSC.

Sponsored by the Center for Cultural Studies with staff support provided by the Institute for Humanities Research, UCSC.
