Chris Yogerst is a film and media historian who focuses on the social and cultural impact of popular culture. His research shows that popular culture often mirrors society in ways that add important context towards understanding our world.
His work can be found in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Washington Post, Hollywood Reporter, and numerous academic journals. His latest book, Hollywood Hates Hitler, examines social climate of American fascism and anti-Semitism leading up to and through the 1941 Senate Investigation into Motion Picture Propaganda (University Press of Mississippi).
Next up, Chris will publish The Warner Brothers (University Press of Kentucky, 2023). This book was completed with the help of a fellowship at the University of Wisconsin's Institute for Research in the Humanities.
