Hollywood and the baby boom: a social history

Researchers working on this two-year project will attempt to write the history of a generation whose tastes and preferences have influenced American cinema for the past 60 years - and who continue to dominate the industry today. The project will focus on the American baby boomers as both audiences and film-makers, encouraging them to record their memories on a major website. By the end of the project, the team plan to create a web resource for future generations of scholars, and a monograph designed to provide fresh insights into the history of American cinema.
