Abstract [en]

As a future teacher you need to make your students understand and realize that history is repeating itself. Frequently, as teachers this results in us providing examples such as how Napoleon and Hitler tried to invade Russia and how both ended up failing their sought-outquest. Time of despair is typically moments of the history and past which later will show in our history books and we teach our children in school. In the society today, a pandemic has spread around the world. World hunger and war are no longer the main news filling our tv screens. The pandemic is showing everywhere in media and might be equally terrifying to think about in both a medicinal point of view as in an economical. The horrors that a pandemic brings affects the society in many ways. Time of uncertainty, both to our health and economical status are effects of the pandemic and one way of understanding the gratitude which situations such as a pandemic brings is to teach our students about pandemics of the past. The Spanish flu was a pandemic which affected the world approximately one century ago, and its characteristics seem to resemble the modern-day corona pandemic.

In today´s society, we are attained by media from several angles some of which are through social media. In many ways these global platforms are a main part of our source of acquired news through internet´s global characteristics of being instant and easily accessible. To teach diseases such as the Spanish flu and the corona virus, it is easier to use examples and materials which the students understand and use. Magazines was the “present day” information providing source which we used, and still is to some extent in today´s society. However, with the growing online-based society the tool of providing information through magazines is slowly progressing to becoming outdated. 

Therefore, in this study, a comparison between the two pandemics will be made through data collected from the magazine; Hallandsposten from 1918, and the social media platform;Instagram in 2020, will be presented. The study will focus on both medias way of portraying the different pandemics, both in an economical point of view through advertising and through the two medias way of depicting the two pandemics.
