Most people think of critical theory as daunting - or often useless - jargon. But we've been using key insights from Frankfurt School critical theory for years not only in education and analysis of the political conditions but fundamentally in shaping how we understand audiences, communications, and strategy. How we can think of critical theory not as a paralyzing agent but as a way of understanding ideology and even psychology to effect better communication and publicity strategies? How can can we do this without losing sight of the important - and necessary - ways critical theory teaches us to be cognizant of our instrumental thinking? In this session, we will answer these questions and look at conrete examples of putting critical theory to work for you and also to work on you.
