How did the United States weaponize information to secure Latin American support during World War II?  What can those strategies tell us about the nature of propaganda campaigns in the age of "fake news?"  Dr. Monica Rankin and her research assistant, Sam Worthington, examine articles and high-quality photos from the Latin America wartime publication, En Guardia, to analyze what propaganda is and how it's crafted.  Join us to learn more about propaganda tactics and the persuasive messaging of the current environment of "fake news.”
