From World War I to the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, posters have been central to winning the hearts and minds of the people who pay the costs of war with their lives and their tax dollars. This presentation by Carol A. Wells shows how posters have been used to promote and oppose wars throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, focusing on posters that oppose diverse U.S. interventions. She will also feature specific posters that have changed individuals and changed history. Wells is an activist, art historian, curator, writer, and poster collector.
