Atomic Light in the Public Light

Kevin Hamilton and I were awarded IPRH funding for  an “Atomic Light in the Public Light” series, which got underway in 2010 here at the University of Illinois. Events include: “The Mushroom Cloud in the Cinematic Imagination” (a round-table of esteemed faculty here at the U of I), “Hollywood’s Secret Film Studio” (a presentation by Byron Risvet of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency), and a talk by Megan Prelinger on artistic representations of outer space in the 1950s and 60s.
