As part and parcel to American Culture Studies’ continued efforts to bring the vibrancy of our community to the web, the Media Archive will include a growing body of audio and visual material. Culled from interviews with visiting scholars, recordings of AMCS events hosted throughout the semester, and features from program initiatives, the Media Archive rounds out amcs.wustl’s digital presence. Our aim is to offer site visitors a way to hear and see community inquire about and debate issues critical to American Life.
