Why do wartime propaganda posters continue to be relevant today?
Our event aimed to raise awareness with young school students about the importance of social science and how we as humans interact with the world around us and create collective crowd behaviours. The themes of the sessions included identity, consumer behaviour, nostalgia, memory, propaganda, mass communication and influence.
The Second World War remains an important part of British identity, and is a recognised study area for secondary education. This interactive session offered new insights for teachers and students into social science perspectives engaging with up to date research. This encouraged them to think about important moments of their childhood, and the formation of their individual and collective identities.
