What is Propaganda?
  • Propaganda is a specific type of message
    presentation aimed at serving an agenda. At its
    root, the denotation of propaganda is 'to
    propagate (actively spread) a philosophy or point
    of view'.
  • The most common use of the term (historically) is
    in political contexts in particular to refer to
    certain efforts sponsored by governments or
    political groups. (Wikipedia)

Why do we use Propaganda?
  • Each of the nations which participated in World
    War One from 1914-18 used propaganda posters.
  • They used posters to
  • justify their involvement to their own populace
  • As a means of recruiting men
  • A way to raise money and resources to sustain the
    military campaign.
  • To urge conservation

Why Posters?
  • Television had not yet been invented
  • Not everyone owned or had access to a radio
  • Posters were the most effective means of getting
    a message across

Government Support
  • Quite often propaganda is connected with negative
    emotions
  • During the Great War the governments needed money
    for the war effort so they focused their efforts
    on posters aimed at raising money from citizens
    for the war effort
