Diffusing political knowledge in illustrated magazines
A comparison between the Portuguese O Panorama and the British The Penny Magazine in 1837–1844
It is our purpose to compare two illustrated periodicals (a Portuguese and a British one) during the 1837–1844 period as to the way political issues are addressed and conveyed, as well as to ascertain the underlying cultural and social reasons in the two countries that can explain the approximations and divergences detected. The Portuguese O Panorama (1837–1868) diffused cultural matters in general. It was created by the Sociedade Propagadora dos Conhecimentos Úteis under the patronage of Alexandre Herculano, a famous man of letters, journalist and writer. The first three series of O Panorama are a direct imitation of the British The Penny Magazine (1832–1845), created by Charles Knight, under the auspices of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge.
