CfP: ASEEES: Propaganda and unconventional, transatlantic communication in the Cold War (due Feb. 15!)

CfP – ASEEES: Personal Communication and Propaganda during the Cold War

With the application deadline for ASEEES looming (Feb 15), we are looking for a third paper to round-out our panel. Our talks touch on issues related to propaganda and personal communication, the multivalent nature of propaganda for its varied audiences, both across and within Cold-War divides, the differences between civic- and state-run initiatives, and the legal and diplomatic frameworks in which propagandists negotiated their campaigns of persuasion.

CS: Revolution and Resistance in Twentieth-Century Central Europe [J. Krapfl, 2018]

The twentieth century, Lenin once predicted, would be remembered as a century of revolution. Perhaps nowhere did this forecast prove more accurate than in central Europe, which between 1917 and 1992 witnessed arguably no fewer than eight revolutionary episodes.

CS: East Central Europe, 1944-2004 [J. Krapfl, 2018]

This is a course on the postwar history of Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, and Poland. Historically and culturally, these four countries all belong to "Central Europe," but from the late 1940s to the early 1990s they were politically part of "the East." What distinguishes this region, in other words, are its historical ties to the West on one hand, and its experience of Communism on the other. Since 1989 a generation has passed and the region has been fully re-integrated into the West.
