The Red Scare: Hollywood and Manipulation

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at 12:45 pm to 3:00 pm

Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105, University Center, UL105 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

This event is the first of a series of events that will examine Hollywood in the New Cold War Era. This will be a screening of the movie The North Star, which was among one of the first pro-Soviet films that was later vilified by HUAC. Afterwards there will an opportunity to engage in a discussion with Professor Nina Khrushcheva as well as Professor Peter Lucas.

This event is sponsored by the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy, the Center for New York City Affairs and Global Studies at The New School.


In the 2016 Spring semester, to mark the 25th anniversary of the end of the Cold War , the Graduate Program in International Affairs at Milano School holds a series of panel discussions and film screenings (organized by Professor Nina Khrushcheva and MA candidate Gabrielle Belli). The series aims to explore the symbiotic relations--both past and contemporary--between the media and politics that trace back to the golden age of Hollywood, the times of the Cold War.
