Strongman Propaganda and Personality Cults from Mussolini to the Present
March 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ruth Ben-Ghiat – New York University
This talk examines the “authoritarian playbook” strongman rulers used to get to office and stay there: corruption, propaganda, violence, and the myth of national greatness. The talk will focus on how propaganda and personality cults tie everything together – and how to push back against authoritarian disinformation.
