This multi-disciplinary conference explores the role played by cultural exchange in the development of the Cold War, especially in the context of East-West relations.

Cultural exchange in the Cold War has in recent years received growing attention, but research is still very scattered. This conference aims to bring together research concerning cultural exchanges from the East and the West. Furthermore, theoretical discussion about the still rather vague definition of the cultural Cold War in encouraged.

Possible paper topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Soviet cultural diplomacy and cultural initiatives
  • Western tourism in the East / Eastern tourism in the West
  • Everyday experiences of cultural exchanges
  • Trans-national networks across the Iron Curtain
  • Media as an agent in cultural exchange
  • Concrete and imagined borders
  • Material and consumer cultures
  • Festivals and international cultural competitions
