The Cold War marked the powerful ideological and geopolitical struggle between the United States and the USSR from the years following the Second World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. In this seminar, we will examine this history through an investigation of American popular culture, asking the larger question: What can objects of pop culture -- music, comic books, TV shows, fiction, advertisements, fashion styles -- tell us about anxieties and desires of the past?
