19. Mediating the Unthinkable: Representations of Cold War Paranoia in Dimension X

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

My project situates the radio program “Dimension X” within the early years of the Cold War. In early 1950s America, science fiction represented a means to explain and render tangible to the American public the notions of nuclear war, space travel, and anti-communist fears. Examination of the radio program “Dimension X” provides a different view of this particular historical moment because that medium alone lay outside of the roving eye of government censors.
