Media War (‘Mediaoorlog’) is a digital history project funded by the Mondriaan Fund that brings together researchers, data engineers, conservators and curators of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, University College Roosevelt and the universities of Nijmegen and Amsterdam.

It aims to explore propaganda discourses in Dutch-language media during the Second World War - with a special focus on the interaction between Pro-Nazi and Pro-Allied propaganda narratives - and to develop new tools and methodologies for analyzing large-scale digitized media collections, such as the newspapers and audio collections that are available in the Dutch digital humanities platform Clariah Media Suite. Topics that we have been working on include the ways in which ideas of Europe and European unity were used for propaganda purposes, countered and deconstructed in both pro-Allied and pro-Nazi newspapers and radio broadcasts.
