Clash of Ideologies:

America and World Fascism

Our popular online course returns January 22 - March 1

Course Info & Registration

https://library.ucsd.edu/speccoll/visfront/newadd25.html

Spanish Civil War posters provide an engaging medium for student investigation of competing ideologies: fascism, communism, socialism, republicanism, and anarchism-and the power of propaganda. The University of California San Diego digitized many of the same posters that are in the collections of the Library of Congress.
