"Selling War, Promoting Business: U.S. Admen and PR as Cultural Mediators in the Two World Wars"
This paper provides a comparative perspective on the role of admen and PR in World War I and World War II. It emphasizes both the continuities and discontinuities in this story. More broadly, it considers the circulation of ideas about economy, society, and politics during this time.
Lunches are held from 12 to 1 PM. The next round will take place in spring 2015. For more information, please contact Felice Whittum at email@example.com.
