Join us as we delve into dynamic and engaging interpretations of 20th century popular culture with our own Matthew Noferi and Catherine Martin. Matthew will give a talk entitled, "'White Line Fever' to 'East Bound and Down': The Trucker in Popular Culture and the 'Southernization' of America, 1963-1978." Catherine will present "'May I Say You’d Make a Splendid Myrna Loy?': Playing the Sidekick to Get Ahead in Remington Steele." Light refreshments will be provided to complement what will undoubtedly be a lively discussion.
