Carr PicMy name is Steven Alan Carr. I am Graduate Program Director and Associate Professor of Communication at Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne, a 2002-03 Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies Postdoctoral Fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, and Co-Director of the IPFW Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. I received my M.A. from Northwestern University in 1987 and a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 1994, both in Radio-Television-Film. Reviews of my first book, Hollywood and Anti-Semitism: A Cultural History up to World War II (Cambridge U P, 2001), have appeared in Commentary, The Forward, The London Review of Books, The New Republic, and The Washington Post. My present project, which explores the response of the American film industry to the growing public awareness of the Holocaust, received an award from the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2002.
