A Brief History of Panic: Illustrated Talk at Otis College 10/21
Los Angeles, California - October 14, 2004 - The Co-Founders of CONELRAD, an organization devoted to the celebration and examination of Cold War popular culture, will present an illustrated lecture, A BRIEF HISTORY OF PANIC: From Duck and Cover to Orange Alerts, at the Otis College of Art and Design on Thursday, October 21, 2004 at 8:00 PM in Los Angeles.
Using graphics drawn from the CONELRAD COLLECTION, an archive of more than 5,000 images, Sitz and Geerhart will take their audience on a bizarre tour through the back roads of Cold War history with a focus on the U.S. government’s Herculean efforts towards fear management during this era.
A special feature of this lecture will be the previewing of a major production history of the seminal Cold War short subject film, DUCK AND COVER (1951). CONELRAD’s Bill Geerhart has conducted extensive interviews and other original research into how this culturally significant film was made and will discuss his findings publicly for the first time during the lecture.
