The National Book Council and Għaqda tal-Malti – Universita’ are organising the yearly Campus Book Fair between the 5th and 7th April. Graphic Novels Library Malta is organizing a talk entitled Captain America: The Propaganda Machine on the 7th of April at 9AM.
Captain America is a comic book character with a rich history, and while delving into the character’s origin, the talk will take into account the context and function of the character, as well as shedding a light on how Captain America gave people hope during WWII. We will also be discussing propaganda and how comic books, alongside other media, can be used as a platform for spreading messages, whatever they may be.
The talk will be delivered by Jonathan Camilleri, a 2nd year B.A. (Hons) Philosophy student at the University of Malta.
We hope to see you there!
