"Cold War matters: the invisible economics of things"

On December 16th and 17th, the Laboratory for Environmental and Technological History and the History Department hosted the symposium titled "​Cold War Matters: (In)Visible Economies of Things." The goal of the symposium was to look at the Cold War from a different angle, one that differed from politics and military. Instead the focus of the symposium was to look at the Cold War through consumer culture, art, science, industry, and the exchange of these things across the permeable Iron Curtain.

«Fighting a New Cult: Thing-Theory of Late Socialism» by Serguei Oushakine!

The second day of the international symposium Cold War matters: The (In) Visible Economies of Things, organized by the Laboratory of Environmental and Technological History, ended with a lecture by Russian-American cultural historian and anthropologist Sergei Alexandrovich Ushakin. Currently, he is an employee of the Department of Slavic Languages ​​and Literature at Princeton University. His professional interests include family and gender identity, the consequences of cultural trauma and the collective memory of the Soviet past.
