I am organizing a panel on Presidents and Nuclear Crises for the American
Presidency on Film National Conference, which will take place from November
10-12, 2000 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Possible films for
discussion include:

Dr. Strangelove (1964)
Fail Safe (1964)

If you would like to present a paper on one of these or other
nuclear-related films, please contact me at the address given below. Papers
on other aspects of the relationship between or depiction of cinematic
presidents and nuclear crises are also welcome. Participants must submit a
200-300-word proposal regarding their paper.
