    Credits: 15.0
    Overlap: None
    Prerequisite: None
    The module examines the nationalist and imperialist propaganda produced in Europe and its colonies during the period leading up to and spanning the First World War. The analytical methods to which students will be introduced can be transferred to the study of any type of propaganda and nationalist literature. Attention will also be paid to linguistic and visual imagery. The study of propaganda involves a broad interdisciplinary approach and students will therefore become familiar with the social and political background behind the production of nationalist discourse.
