Hong Kong Baptist University
We invite proposals for a multidisciplinary conference critically examining “Cold War” thinking, both historically and as a construct for understanding contemporary global rivalries. In particular, we are keen to include papers that critically examine and problematize Cold War narratives; their production and circulation among foreign policy professionals as well as in academia, media, and culture; their broader influence on contemporary ways of thinking; and their continued use in the 21st century. Especially welcome are interdisciplinary papers that draw connections among fields such as international relations, international communications studies, journalism, cinema and television studies, cultural studies, and the visual arts.
Travel support is available for selected student presenters.
Organisers: This conference is organised by a multidisciplinary group of researchers at Hong Kong Baptist University, including scholars of media and communication, film studies, visual arts, and political science.
