I've been speaking with Ron Radosh about putting together a panel about communism in Hollywood for the Film & History conference at the end of October this year (Oct 29-Nov 2) in Madison, WI. I am the area chair for the Hollywood Studio System and would love to bring some of the excellent research you all have done to this conference.
Here is my call for papers and other info about the conference:
Five new files this week. The first is an early (1891) Q&A with Socialist Labor Party leader Daniel DeLeon in which he expounds upon the relationship between the Socialist and Anarchist movements. The other four date from 1921and deal with the SPA's short-lived efforts to join the Comintern, socialist lecturer Kate O'Hare's kidnapping by the American Legion, the political defection of journalist J. Louis Engdahl, and the esoteric factional politics of the Latvian Federation, respectively.
