Research Interests

Professor Zuschlag researches the construction of American New Left manhood during the Vietnam era and its iterations in the years after the war. Her work focuses on the U.S. Selective Service System, draft avoidance and their representation across a variety of popular media in the late 1960s and 1970s, especially on film. She is interested in practices of masculinity, and the intersection of masculinity and violence, particularly during the long Cold War years. Professor Zuschlag heartily champions interdisciplinary approaches to academic study, particularly the integration of popular culture into historical analyses.
