The Library has organised a Booktalk together with the Department of History. In the booktalk, Prof. LEMBERG introduced her book “Barriers Down: How American Power and Free-Flow Policies Shaped Global Media” and shared her insight with us.
In the book, Prof. LEMBERG explores the ideas of “freedom of information” that emerged in the 1940s and reveals its unexpected origins in political, economic, and cultural battles. These ideas reshaped and influenced the world. Besides, Prof. LEMBERG analyses the U.S. government’s promotion of ideas “free flow of information” by various new media ranging from television and satellite broadcasting to global English.
