European Union (EU) Posters

A selection of European Union related posters held by the University of Bath Archives and Research Collections, 1972, 1992-2014.

In 2017, with some help from a Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences Teaching Development Fund grant, the Library and the Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies (PoLIS) jointly purchased a collection of over 140 EU-related posters. Featuring the languages of most European countries, the posters cover a wide range of topics from immigration and trade, to human rights and the environment. Some are formal; some are humorous. They are all colourful, communicative and visually engaging.

This selection of 44 posters was curated by Dr Nina Parish, Dr Maria Garcia and Dr Nick Startin, PoLIS, for a display in the Chancellors’ Building as part of the 48th Annual Conference of the University Association for Contemporary European Studies (UACES) hosted on campus, 2nd-5th September 2018.

We hope you enjoy them!
