Resumo

Having in mind the idiom ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, I propose analyzing how the Portuguese illustrated press portrayed the national army’s intervention in the First World War. I will be comparing a pro-War magazine, Portugal na Guerra, with another not manifestly political, Ilustração Portugueza, both published in 1917. Taking a cultural anthropological perspective, I will seek to understand how they made notice of the event through visual representations, so allowing a largely illiterate population to acknowledge the military participation. Could their different political positioning manifest specific notions of Self and Other, thus, of national identity?
