Dr. Crawford Presents at Cold War Cultures Conference
Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Dr. Crawford, pictured here with a cannon on the grounds of the Texas state capitol in Austin, presented his paper on the television program I Spy (1965-1968) and its role in imagining the Cold War (1946-1991). Crawford enjoyed the many excellent panels that were put on at the conference, and with his wife Sophie, had a great time exploring Austin.
Crawford's session on imagining race during the Cold War, was well attended despite taking place in the middle of the Texas-Oklahoma game. Originally scheduled for four presenters, Crawford was the only one who managed to be present. His talk "I Spy: Sport, Race, and the Cold War," was well received and the audience joined in with questions and discussion, so it was a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
