The Cold War is often historicized as a struggle between two opposing ideological camps with the United States and Russia at the helm, vying for political and economic control of Eurasia. Such historiography relies on a binary that is used to divide the world geo-politically, economically, and culturally, and ignores the intertwined histories of international socialism, personality cults, and local solidarity campaigns in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Studies have focused on the distribution of Soviet influence over Central and Eastern Europe, but there are less well documented histories of the formal and informal circulation of ideas, people, and images from China into and about Eastern Europe through the communist/socialist and non-aligned networks.

Trust: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

We live in a time when manipulated images, partisan reporting, and allegations of ‘fake news’ make it increasingly difficult to determine whether individuals and institutions are worthy of our trust. Trust is akin to a leap of faith that depends on a combination of experience, intuition, bravery and sheer hope. As Alphonse Lingis observes, ‘[…] to trust you is to go beyond what I know and to hold on to the real individual that is you.” Interpersonal trust circumvents the uncertainties that may put relationships at risk and transforms these into the most wondrous of alliances as doubt turns to rapture.
