Intolerable, perillosa, imprescindible: intel·lectuals i polítics estadounidencs davant la problemàtica de la propaganda al període d'entreguerres (1919-1939)

Dario Migliucci


El present article es proposa reconstruir el debat intel·lectual sobre manipulació de l'opinió pública que es va desenvolupar als Estats Units en el període d'entreguerres. S'analitzaran a més les activitats contra la propaganda que van ser dutes a terme per exponents del món de la cultura, d'una banda, i pels poders executiu i legislatiu, per una altra. La hipòtesi de la recerca és que al llarg del període d'entreguerres es va anar configurant als Estats Units una forma particular d'entendre la propaganda, una visió pedagògica de les activitats de persuasió que perduraria en el temps, convertint-se en una peculiaritat de la nació nord-americana.

Paraules clau

Propaganda; Opinió pública; Període d'entreguerres; Estats Units
