Tim Stanley (The Daily Telegraph/UCL-IA Fellow) - Until the early 1960s, Hollywood was institutionally somewhat conservative: the Republican-leaning studio chiefs tightly controlled their stars’ politics. But in the late 1960s something happened to turn the movie-makers into congenital liberals. Paul Newman stumped for Eugene McCarthy, The Man From UNCLE went for Bobby Kennedy and Barbra Streisand sang her heart out for George McGovern. In this paper, Tim Stanley looks at the leftward turn in Hollywood during the Nixon presidency and examines how it laid roots that still show today.

Start: Jan 28, 2015 5:30:00 PM
End: Jan 28, 2015 7:30:00 PM

The Great Depression in Latin America
Paulo Drinot (UCL-IA) and Alan Knight (Oxford) - Although Latin America weathered the Great Depression better than the United States and Europe, the global economic collapse of the 1930s had a deep and lasting impact on the region. The contributors to this book examine the consequences of the Depression in terms of the role of the state, party-political competition, and the formation of working-class and other social and political movements. Going beyond economic history, they chart the repercussions and policy responses in different countries, while noting common cross-regional trends, in particular, a mounting critique of economic orthodoxy and greater state intervention in the economic, social and cultural spheres, both trends crucial to the region's subsequent development. The book also examines how regional transformations interacted with and differed from global processes. Taken together, these essays deepen our understanding of the Great Depression as a formative experience in Latin America and provide a timely comparative perspective on the recent global economic crisis.

Prof Jeanne Theoharis (Brooklyn College, CUNY) - Rosa Parks is best known as the woman whose refusal to get off a segregated bus sparked the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott of 1955-56, a key event in the development of the Civil Rights Revolution.  However her political activism on behalf of black freedom extended well beyond this seminal act of resistance. Distinguished historian Jeanne Theoharis explores how her life was dedicated to rebellion against racism. All are welcome to attend a talk that will illuminate the black freedom struggle, the question for civil rights, and the problem of race in modern America.
