Seeking panelists/commentators for a panel exploring topics related to 20th century psychological warfare and propaganda, broadly conceived, for the OAH conference in San Francisco. How has the United States conceptualized “enemies of the state” in popular and “official” discourses? How has the United States, in turn, been popularly portrayed in other nations? And, finally, what impact have concepts related to psychological warfare had on domestic American society? Have they created new anxieties about the powers of the “state,” or had any measurable impact on Americans perceptions of modern warfare and international relations?
The panel aims to provoke an interdisciplinary discussion, and welcomes contributions from scholars working in the history of medicine, science, international relations, cultural and social history and other related fields. If interested, please send a short CV and paper topic to Dr. Matthew W. Dunne at firstname.lastname@example.org .
