Culture and Identity in the Cold War

July 3, 2021 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


In their debut salon Lisa Wehden examines culture, emotions and the daily life of Europeans during the Cold War.

We’ll explore themes of material culture, memory and nostalgia, death and changing notions of private life. The texts offer perspectives from both the east and west, encouraging comparisons across the Iron Curtain.

We’ll explore how individuals were impacted by the devastating events of the 1940s, the social and economic changes of the post-war years, and the new challenges and cultural influences of the 1960s.

The suggested readings are definitely not required (but I’d highly recommend!)
