I would like to compose a panel on government intolerance of religion in the twentieth century for a conference hosted by the Newport Historical Society in Rhode Island on October 3-6, 2013.
My paper addresses state censorship of religious broadcasters in the 1940s-60s. Politically-conservative, Christian broadcasters feared censorship by the Federal Communications Commission, a fear that drove them to form surprising alliances, energized a Christian grassroots, and played a key role in the rise of the New Christian Right.
Please contact me no later than January 15th if you have a paper topic that fits the theme of the panel.
