MLA 207
Guest Lecture

Deborah Cohn, Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at Indiana University-Bloomington, will give a lecture entitled "Cold War American Studies: Robert Spiller, the U.S. Information Agency, and the American Studies Certificate." Part of her current research project, "Cold War Humanities," Cohn's talk examines the history of an American studies academic certificat developed at the behest of the U.S. Information Agency, which targeted non-citizens outside the United States. The program's history reveals how academics, universities, and government agencies worked together in the service of national interest. Presented by the Willson Center Research Seminar on Cultural and Linguistic Identity in the Americas.
