The University of Nottingham welcomes Dr Kaye Mitchell, Senior Lecturer at The University of Manchester, to discuss the history of Lesbian Pulp Fiction, the 1950’s paperback publishing phenomenon in the USA.
Tom Bishop, School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies presents this lecture. Although now the subject of satirical retro-futuristic depictions in video games and TV shows, the family fallout shelter and the question of ‘to dig or not to dig’ once occupied a central and very serious place in U.S. culture. With the release of Bethesda’s Fallout 4 set to bring these debates back to the forefront of US popular culture the time seems right to re-examine the origins of shelter culture and its depictions in film, literature and on screen.
Join the last event in the Popular Culture Lecture Series for a discussion between award-winning science fiction author Adam Roberts and Dr Caroline Edwards, Birkbeck University.
