Re: Need help on digital archives for colonial ads or WW I posters for student assignment

Hello Alyssa,

It sounds like a great project! The Australian War Memorial have good digitized collections if you are looking for information outside the US. Try doing an advanced search - https://www.awm.gov.au/advanced-search - select Collections, then Posters from left-hand tabs.

Best wishes

Re: Need help on digital archives for colonial ads or WW I posters for student assignment

Alyssa, I've always found the National Archives (UK) to be a great source for documents and images http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/. Take a look at their "Education" resources - there's at least one collection on the British Empire that has images and documents that might be of use to you, and I'm sure there are other collections on the site. You can also take a look at the online collections of the National Army Museum at https://www.nam.ac.uk/. I know that they have colonial recruiting posters in their collection.

Need help on digital archives for colonial ads or WW I posters for student assignment

Hello all,

I'm trying a new assignment in which students will use digital history tools to create a project analyzing either World War I posters or advertisements with colonial imagery.  I use Andrea/Overfield's The Human Record in my world history survey and am envisioning students finding their own World War I posters and colonial advertisements to decode and compare to those in the HR.
