|Abstract English||The role and function of images as source material have changed in a number of ways during the last couple of decades. Today, terms like visual culture and media literacy are used both inside and outside the academic context. A growing number of the discussions focus on visual and audiovisual source material and they often deal with topics such as representation, history, identity and cultural heritage. These concepts will function as tentative starting points from which the analysis will develop. The paper present some of the results from an ongoing study mainly dealing with Swedish newsreels from the Second World War. In focus are the ways in which political rhetoric was mediated cinematically during the 1940s. Much of the material under study combine well-known symbols of political power with renowned icons of patriotism. In this audiovisual rhetoric, images of Sweden’s cultural heritage played a significant part with considerable impact among the general public. It is, however, worth mentioning that the limited and tentative analysis presented here, is part of a larger and ongoing interdisciplinary project studying the overall mediation of politics in Sweden during the last century.|
