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.
