I am seeking, along with a colleague, to form a panel on popular culture during the early Cold War for the 2005 SHAFR conference. My own paper focuses on the efforts of Hollywood anticommunists, the FBI, and Congressional investigators in bringing about the 1947 hearings on communist subversion/propaganda in the motion picture industry. Fellow UCSB graduate student Paul Hirsch's paper will address portrayals of the atomic bomb in American comic books from 1945-1954. We seek a third paper on Cold War popular culture during this era, a commentator, and a chair. Anyone interested please contact me, John Sbardellati, at: firstname.lastname@example.org Best Regards, John Sbardellati Center for Cold War Studies University of California, Santa Barbara email@example.com
