“US Television, Latin America, and the Decade of Development.”

Advisor: Professor Anna McCarthy.

An examination of how television as a communication technology, a representational medium, and a commercial institution informed American audiences about economic development, industrialization, and modernization as means to curb Communism influence in Latin America during the 1960s. Case studies include: the launching of television infrastructure in the US and abroad as a means of promoting economic development; US network-produced television documentary programs on the governments and economies of Latin American nations; and local television documentaries on the impact of Latin America and the Cold War on local communities.
