Skip to 0 minutes and 7 seconds If you are interested in history, the recent centenary commemorations of World War I won’t have passed you by. We have all seen images and heard stories of those on the front line, as well as learning about those left to manage at home.
Skip to 0 minutes and 24 seconds Through videos, activities, and quizzes, this course will look at just some of the ways in which art and film have been used to tell these stories. We start by exploring recruitment posters, and consider how the words and images changed as the war progressed. We look at war art, and you have the opportunity to curate your own online exhibition. In the second week, we move on to look at film– specifically, contemporary German film. And you are encouraged to review a film, book, or TV programme. Along the way, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to research and discuss topics with learners from around the world.
