The Code: Censorship and Collaboration in American Movies, 1900-1968

This project builds on the first wave of the history of movie censorship but employs emerging theoretical and comparative frameworks. It reconsiders the campaign for movie censorship as a broad-based social movement, reinterprets the context of movie censorship in the light of evolving theoretical understandings, and reexamines the process of movie censorship as a process of collaboration and negotiation as much as confrontation.
