Propaganda of World War II: Strategies of Persuasion

Primary tabs

In this class, working closely with sources from the Hoover Archives, we will look at both primary and secondary sources to see how written, visual, and film sources were used by several countries to influence their citizens on multiple levels. We will study the rhetoric of eugenics, political speeches, and war posters, and we will also look at how advertising during WWII pursued clear agendas to support government goals.
