Fred Turner: "Media Against Fascism, Then and Now"

Fred Turner is the Harry and Norman Chandler Professor of Communication at Stanford University. His talk, "Media Against Fascism, Then and Now" is drawn from his recent book The Democratic Surround: Multimedia and American Liberalism from World War II to the Psychedelic Sixties (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2015), which has been described as "a dazzling cultural history that demonstrates how American intellectuals, artists, and designers from the 1930s-1960s imagined new kinds of collective events-different from Fascism's crowds-that were intended to promote a powerful experience of American democracy in action."
