AAC, colloque "Pro-democratic Propaganda, Press Culture and Political Communication in the Weimar Republic"November 22, 2019, University of Bremen

Date limite : 15 mars 2019

The conference aims to address and bring together experts on pro-democratic political communication in the Weimar Republic. Specifically, it will focus on counterpropaganda against Nazi messages in the final phase of the Weimar Republic. The discussion will cover aspects of this counterpropaganda from a communication studies-perspective. However, we will gladly welcome any research from the history of ideas, science and art ; social, political and cultural history ; political science and other social science disciplines.

The contributions should deal with – but are not exclusively concerned – with the following subjects :
 the historical origins of counterpropaganda in the history of theory and ideas
 the communication- and press-historical contextualization of anti-fascist campaigns
 the organisational embedding of counter propaganda in the Weimar Republic
 biographies of central communicators, spin doctors and theorists of pro-democratic campaigns
 the contemporary press coverage of counterpropaganda
 the semiotic analysis of pro-democratic campaigns in the Weimar Republic
 the diffusion or termination of symbols and propaganda theories from the pro- democratic context after 1933 (also from a transnational and comparative perspective)
 possibilities and limits of the comparison of interwar counterpropaganda with current debates on hate and counter speech


Accordingly, the conference intends to transcend disciplinary boundaries, to redefine and condense the field of political communication aimed at defending the Weimar Republic. The three-arrows campaign is one of the many examples of these actions.

The conference will be held following a workshop on the history of communication of the League of Nations (DFG-Project "History of Communication of the League of Nations", project lead : Prof. Dr. Averbeck-Lietz, staff : Dr. Erik Koenen and Arne L. Gellrich). This workshop, hold on the 21st of November 2019, will be introduced with a keynote by Kaarle Nordenstreng (Prof. em. University of Tampere, Finland). Participation is also possible on request, but the number of participants is limited.

In the evening of the 21st of November, during a get-together, Boris Hars-Tschachotin, a documentary filmmaker and great-grandson of Sergei Tschachotin, will give a film-lecture on the topic of the following day, pro-democratic political communication in the final phase of the Weimar Republic.

Please send your anonymous abstracts of maximum 500 word as well as a separate file with your address data by March 15 for the blind review process to :
sax@uni-bremen.de.
Approvals will be sent to participants by the end of May 2019.
Please also indicate whether you are interested in participating in the workshop on the history of communication of the League of Nations on the 21st of November.
Conference fee : 15 euros (scientific staff), 30 euros (professors).
