"Cold War matters: the invisible economics of things"

"Cold War matters: the invisible economics of things"
On December 16th and 17th, the Laboratory for Environmental and Technological History and the History Department hosted the symposium titled "​Cold War Matters: (In)Visible Economies of Things." The goal of the symposium was to look at the Cold War from a different angle, one that differed from politics and military. Instead the focus of the symposium was to look at the Cold War through consumer culture, art, science, industry, and the exchange of these things across the permeable Iron Curtain.
