How The Voice Has Changed: Looking Back At The Origins Of The Voice Of America

Public Diplomacy Council

Date & Time

Monday, Jul 10, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Voice of America - and the rest of U.S. public diplomacy - underwent a major change during World War 2. In many ways the wartime debates of the 1940s still resonate today, as attention shifts from wartime Nazi propaganda to today's "Firehose of Russian Falsehoods." These changes will be discussed by historian Holly Cowan Shulman, author of The Voice of America:  Propaganda and Democracy, 1941-1945, “The Voice of America, US Propaganda and the Holocaust: ‘I would have remembered” and “John Houseman and the Voice of America: American Propaganda on the Air."
