What was the Cold War and how was it experienced in Asia and the Pacific Islands? Why does its legacy continue to haunt so many who live in these regions today? This course presents a study of the Cold War through a focus on its expanse in Asia and the Pacific Islands, places where the effects of this global conflict were localized and anything but “cold.” The Cold War brought to light numerous contradictions in an era of decolonization, postwar boom, civil rights struggles, and wars of containment. Topics include race, gender, and sexuality in popular Cold War culture and ideology; nuclear testing in the Pacific; colonialism and food; and migration and citizenship.
