Symposium: Selling Democracy: Productivity and Propaganda in the Service of American Foreign Policy (Admission Free)

In conjunction with the Selling Democracy film retrospective, PFA and Goethe-Institut host this Marshall Plan symposium, open to students, teachers, and the general public. Distinguished scholars will speak about elements of the Marshall Plan that secured its place in history and its relevance today. The use of film as the Plan's main propaganda medium will also be examined. Participants include historian and former UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl; Richard M. Buxbaum, Jackson H. Ralston Professor of International Law; Christina von Hodenberg, visiting assistant professor in the Department of History; and series organizer Sandra Schulberg. The discussion will be moderated by Michael Nacht, dean of UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy.
