Since World War I, the US film industry has emerged as the dominant force in global popular culture. Though new technologies have recently created turbulence, Hollywood has maintained a significant hold on popular consciousness. In this presentation, John Trumpbour, Research Director of the Labor & Worklife Program (LWP) at Harvard Law School, will examine what are the sources of Hollywood’s ideological strength and cultural power. He will provide foundations for exploring whether the U.S. culture industries may be overcome by rival nations in the 21st century.

This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
