"Advertising Europe" – Films on European Integration between Information and Propaganda

Dates:
  • Mon 29 Oct 2018 15.00 - 16.30
  Add to Calendar 2018-10-29 15:00 2018-10-29 16:30 Europe/Paris "Advertising Europe" – Films on European Integration between Information and Propaganda

In the same way like last year, the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre on the History of European Integration is organising a cycle of seminars to give researchers the opportunity to present their current or recent work on different aspects of European Integration.

Since its very beginning, the European integration process has been accompanied by a large publicity campaign. Its aim was to inform the Europeans about the newly established communities and to achieve their identification with the “idea of Europe”, or to put it differently: to make propaganda for Europe.
In this context, audiovisual media played a crucial role, and accordingly more than 400 films were produced by European institutions, national governments, the European Movement and private companies in order to communicate Europe.

In this workshop Anne Bruch and Gabriele Clemens are going to present the results of the recently completed project on these films which they defined as “Europafilme”. Further, they will concentrate on the methodological issues such as the definition and classification of these films as well as how to contextualize and analyze them. Subsequently, they will show and discuss some film clips.

The seminar is co-organized with the EUI Visual and Material History Working Group and will be chaired by Prof. Federico Romero.
