My dissertation will examine how various pressure groups shaped the American motion picture industry, especially the industry's system of self-regulation, during the mid-twentieth century. I am most interested in seeing how these debates over motion picture self-regulation reflected and influenced the changing interpretations of the First Amendment during the twentieth century. I am originally from Medina, Ohio, and received both my BA (2010) and MA (2012) in history from Miami University, located in Oxford, Ohio.
