Lecture: War propaganda in superpower SwedenDate: Wednesday 13 nov 2019 - Wednesday 13 Nov 2019 Show map
During the 1600s, Sweden expanded and became a great power. But the price was high. Half a million Swedish soldiers paid with their lives. In order to get people to line up for the wars, the state power used advanced propaganda.
The governing bodies could reach almost all people in society with their information, but that did not mean that they were informed about everything. The victories became big news, but the defeat is aggravated. Anna Maria Forssberg, a researcher, tells us about war propaganda in Sweden's great power.
The lecture is done in collaboration with Folkuniversitetet.
