The students of GRMT134: Stereotypes in Advertising, taught at Pomona College by Prof. Felix Kronenberg, are organizing a series of three exhibitions in Honnold/Mudd Library. On exhibit through the end of spring semester will be Special Collections' World War I and World War II posters and ephemera as well as imagery and advertising of current world events.
The second of these exhibitions is “Wartime Patriotism: Past & Present”. A version of this in-library exhibition is also available as a web exhibition.
The students in this interdisciplinary course are exploring the depiction of the other in the world of advertising, looking at various stereotypes pertaining to categories such as nationality, ethnicity, gender, or age from a cultural studies perspective.
