Lecture to explore Cold War-era television

An exploration of television’s influences in 1950s Cold War America, and the misconceptions many people have about them, will be the central theme of an upcoming lecture by Thomas Doherty, associate professor of American studies at Brandeis University.

“Cold War, Cool Medium: Television, McCarthyism and American Culture” will be held Monday, Sept. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in 205 White Hall. It is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow. For more information, call 404-727-6761.
