Profiles in Science: Visual Culture and Health Posters

This exhibit about the historical use of posters to inform the public about health issues provides a fascinating look into the way visual media have developed over time. Readers may like to begin with the Brief History section, which provides an introduction to the exhibit, including the innovations of French artists in the mid-19th century and the adoption of posters for the purpose of public health campaigns during World War I. From there, readers may explore the categories of Infectious Disease, Environmental Health, Anti-Smoking Campaigns, and HIV/AIDS, each of which is accompanied by a thorough annotation that introduces and explicates the context for the campaign, visual strategies, and other helpful information.
