Oh what a laugh! This slide is one of a collection of paperback book covers given to The Effects of Vietnam on American Culture (EVAC) research group by an American academic who contributed to the eponymous international conference held in the summer of 1985 at the Didsbury campus. The group was made up of members of what were then the Departments of History of Art, English, History, Politics and Philosophy and included colleagues David Huxley and Robert Hamilton. The conference also saw the first collaboration between what was then Manchester Polytechnic and Manchester City Art Gallery with the exhibition Vietnam and the Graphic Arts at the Fletcher Moss Gallery. We still have the slides but the books have long since disappeared.
