2022 Livingston Lecture - Warfare from Cave Walls to Instagram: How Authoritarian States and Extremists Weaponize Visuals

Thursday, October 20 (5:30 PM-7:00 PM) | Lindsay Auditorium, Sturm Hall 281 Although visuals have been part of political messaging for thousands of years, their use now is ever more crucial to identity-building, persuasion, and manipulation thanks to a networked society that is cluttered by trillions of videos, photographs, and infographics. With the competition over eyeballs intensifying in the digital environment, both nation states and extremist actors have developed their messaging strategies to effectively reach and mobilize transnational audiences. In this lecture, Kareem El Damanhoury, assistant professor in the Department of Media, Film & Journalism Studies, will trace the evolution of “propaganda” from ancient times to modern day Instagram feeds, highlight ISIS as an exemplar of extremist actors who have managed to build alternative, visually dominant media systems, and present China as a case study for authoritarian states expanding their targeted communication globally to promote their ideologies and undermine their rivals.
