CAS Initiative on Conspiracy, Misinformation, and the Infodemic
This presentation provides a general overview of the “Propaganda of History” since the origination of public schools in the United States during the 1840s. Connecting this history to recent legislation in the state of Illinois around Media Literacy, this presentation provides critical historical context to more recent efforts to resist modern iterations of misinformation and conspiracy in our schools.
