On the 26th of February, the University of Malta Junior College Philosophy Department alongside the Graphic Novels Library Malta is organizing a talk entitled Captain America: The Propoganda Machine.
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 light on how Captain America gave people hope during WWII. We will also be discussing propoganda 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.
