Medium, Message and Method in Cultures of the Cold War is an interdisciplinary symposium which brings together scholars working on Cold War culture. While this symposium focuses primarily on Germany as both a real and imagined site where the Cold War was practiced and performed, transnational encounters and exchanges will be at the core of our discussions. Accordingly, (East and West) German cultural, historical, and theoretical discourses will be considered in connection with Turkish, American, African, and Spanish contexts that influenced and inflected them.

The format of the proceedings is a roundtable discussion with pre-circulated papers. Please email the organizer, Ela Gezen, if you would like to attend and retrieve the papers.
