This week I talk to Erik Mortenson, author most recently of Ambiguous Borderlands: Shadow Imagery in Cold War American Culture

We talk in some depth about his work on shadow imagery in post-war America, including in the Beat poets, film noir and imagery of the atomic bomb. 

We then move into other topics, such as academic publishing,  writing style, teaching in different cultures, the use of technology in the classroom.
