This Future Classroom Scenario has been developed as part of the Europeana DSI-3 project. The main objective of this scenario is to constitute an initiation to the study of satirical cartoons as historical documents.
Satirical Cartoons are complex but attractive documents to study 19th and 20th century political history. Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) is a major European figure who ruled continental Europe between 1805 and 1813, arousing oppositions and resentments and generating a rich iconography (satirical and official). The learning scenario uses satirical cartoons and tries to acquire knowledge from them on “How Napoleon was seen by his opponents”. It is also an introduction to the codes and techniques of satirical images in general.
