Letters from America Public Seminar

I really enjoyed the public seminar that was held in the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in UCC this evening. My fellow PhD Candidate, Miranda Corcoran, was part of the panel discussing the ongoing influence of American culture and politics.

There were some very interesting observations made about the crisis of masculinity in post-war America, and about the role of suburbia in the new society that was forged during the 1950s.
