School of Languages & Cultures - German Taster session
This taster session gives you an insight into studying German at university.
Hitler's Bathing Trunks and the AfD's Bikini: Populist Propaganda in Germany
National Socialism was not just just an evil ideology -- it was an evil ideology that had to be sold to the German people. The lecture looks at the way in which the Nazis painted a picture of Hitler as both man of the people and saviour of Germany. The populist principles underlying this marketing strategy are then explored further through a compare-and-contrast with some election posters used by today's right-wing populist Alternative für Deutschland party.
When: Tuesday 16 November 2021, 3.45pm - 5.15pm
Year 12, Year 13,
