As the fifth speaker in the Wednesday Evening Speaker Series, offered in conjunction with State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda, Dr. Pearl James, University of Kentucky, situates World War I propaganda posters within the larger visual culture of the time, illustrating how a single image moved from newspapers to posters and into animated film, signaling a historic shift in warfare while changing the style of advertising and extending its reach in ways that anticipate our current, super-saturated media environment.
