Remapping Cold War Media: Institutions, Infrastructures, Translations (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Media from the Cold War is often remembered in terms of conflict and propaganda, of a binary East and West. The reality during this era, however, was that film, television, radio, and other media were creating a global discourse between Eastern Europe, the West, and even the Global South.

Drawing on methods in media and literary history, Remapping Cold War Media offers new perspectives on the transnational aspects of Cold War media. Contributors analyze countries around the world, including Cuba, Finland, Italy, and more, to provide a fuller picture of a significant and complex media culture. They look past state-sanctioned or tolerated media to trace a web of connections that crossed and extended Europe's divided media landscape. The volume's extensive archival research reveals the creation of cross-bloc satellite communications, the work of Western film producers in Eastern Europe, the influence of Soviet theories of socialist realism in Latin America, and more. These international dynamics, the volume poses, were less frequently motivated by large-scale ideological concerns and more often by pragmatic matters such as professional practices and standards, technology and infrastructure, and economics.

As a whole, Remapping Cold War Media deftly demonstrates that the cultural history of media during the Cold War cannot simply be described as a binary conflict. Rather, it requires us to consider a global set of interactions that helped establish the ways media circulates today.
