About this course:

As technology has evolved to allow a wide variety of political and social platforms, so has the rise in controversial views on the Internet. As a result, misinformation or fake news has also surged, contributing to growing political extremists in this changing digital age. This has subsequently changed the public’s consumption of news and participation in political discourse, as extreme views are viewed with scrutiny by the mainstream and lauded by sympathizers who perceive these views to be a side effect of a healthy and pluralistic political climate. This course introduces the context of the far-right or alt-right on the Internet, the legitimacy of various controversial strategies by the various alt-right groups, and implications on both online and physical political discourse.
