„Globalisation during the Cold War: Culture, New Geopolitics and Che Guevara“ – Introducing Our Table Hosts

How much was today’s world order shaped by the Cold War era and its end? What events represent important caesurae of the East-West conflict besides the year 1989, for instance the founding of the United Nations, the Decolonization starting in the 1960s and the catastrophe of Chernobyl etc.? What role did new social, political, and ecological movements, as well as regional and international organisations play in this? How were literature, the visual and performing arts deployed as salient battlefields in the global Cold War? And which changes are difficult to explain from an European point of view or are not a direct outcome of the end of the conflict?
