This is a great idea for a conference. I wanted to alert you to a new book, which can help set the context for the research people are doing in the later period of the 1960s: Wendy Goldman and Donald Filtzer, eds. Hunger and War. Food Provisioning in the Soviet Union during World War II (Indiana University Press, 2015.) The situation of the war years was of course very different than the post war years, yet habits of mind among people in both urban and rural areas were indelibly stamped with the suffering and hunger of the war years.
