Poster Patriots: The Construction of Patriotism Through U.S. War Propaganda
Date of Creation
This project was made during the 2022 Fortenbaugh Digital Humanities Fellowship. It explores the construction of patriotism in U.S. war propaganda posters during the Civil War, World War I, and World War II. The project focuses on the themes of race thinking, the representation of women, and the role of economics. Posters were found in the Musselman Library’s Special Collections and College Archives, the Library of Congress, and other sites. This project uses StoryMapJS and TimelineJS to analyze the posters and trends in a WordPress site.
