Viewing Socialist China Via Propaganda Posters

This asynchronous NCTA short course invites participants to explore the visual arts and political culture of Socialist China (1949-1976) through propaganda posters. The mini-course will examine three themes: gender, technology, and imaginings of foreigners, and how these posters, as political tools, showcase a socialist utopia centered on industrialization, social equality, and an image of foreign adversaries.
