Godzilla, James Bond, Hawaii Five-O — the Cold War gifted audiences with many entertaining distractions in a climate of global and political uncertainty. While the Cold War has often been narrated as a standoff between U.S. and Soviet superpowers, this course provides a survey to the history of the Cold War in Asia and the Pacific Islands, a place where experiences were often not “cold” at all. Asians and Pacific Islander histories will be considered front and center, as we uncover the lived realities of war, colonialism, and unrest from 1945-91. Issues of interest include race, gender, and sexuality in popular Cold War culture and ideology, nuclear testing, food, and migration.
