A conference hosted by the Department of American Studies and the Marcus Cunliffe Centre for the Study of the American South at the University of Sussex, Friday, September 5, 2008:
Sixty years on, 1948 stands out as a year of significant shifts in American politics, society and culture. The year saw changes in party politics, foreign policy, art, literature and popular culture which would all have long-lasting consequences over the years and decades to come. This conference shall re-examine these realignments and explore their continuing relevance in later years, whether 1968, or 2008. Following the panels, the conference will be concluded with a keynote address by Professor David Garrow of Cambridge University and a conference dinner in Brighton.
The conference registration fee is £10.
