February 13, 2014 – 11:24 AM

Due to inclement weather, the University of Georgia campus will be closed today, Thursday, February 13, 2014.

Tonight’s scheduled panel discussion, Nuclear Anxiety and Civil Defense in Popular Culture, has been postponed. This event will now take place on next Thursday, February 20th from 5:30-7:00PM in the auditorium of the Special Collections Building.

Inspired by the exhibit “Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow: Living with the Atomic Bomb, 1945-1965,” on display in the Russell Library Gallery through March 14, this event will feature a panel discussion focused on the cultural impact of the atomic bomb addressing how films, fashion and comics of the time period were inspired and shaped by both the technology and anxiety of the nuclear age. Light refreshments will be served.

Featured speakers will include: Kirk Willis, Department of History; Christopher Pizzino, Department of English; Jose Blanco F., Historic Clothing and Textiles Collection; and Christopher Sieving, Department of Theatre and Film Studies.

Additionally, tonight’s screening of Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb has also been postponed. The screening will now take place on Thursday, March 6th from 7:00-9:00PM, immediately following the panel discussion Nuclear Threats, Then and Now (5:30-7:00PM). We hope you’ll plan to join us for this double feature as well!
