Robots! Images from my SSHA Paper

Great to be back in Chicago for the Social Science History Association conference.  I was scheduled to give a paper on the “Iconography of the Workers Education Movement.”  But, alas, time got away from me so I presented a modified version of an article on the play “R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) and the shifting image of the Robot from the 1920s to the 1930s.  Got some good feedback from Liz Faue and others. 

Part of the paper was a quick review of the iconography of the robot, which I’m attaching to this post as a slideshow.
