Conference: Narrating Cold Wars

The year 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the end of the “Cold War”, a half-century of superpower rivalry that has generated stubbornly rigid ways of thinking about our world. Our conference critically explores the ways in which cold wars have been narrated, what these narratives have left out, and how alternative possibilities may be imagined. The three-day event will feature a dozen invited experts and more than 60 paper presenters, selected from submissions responding to our open call.

The conference is online and all are welcome to attend by Zoom. Admission is free of charge, but registration is required. Please visit the website for the full programme and our registration form.

The event is organised by HKBU’s School of Communication and Film in collaboration with Academy of Visual Arts and the Department of Government and International Studies.
