ASEEES 2019 Panel - Sino-East European Relations during the Cold War and the Non-Alignment Movement

updated:

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.

Teaching Graphic Narratives

Graphic narratives offer a wide variety of doubles and doppelgängers. Secret superhero identities and Gothic doubles create unique possibilities for exploring the self, power, perception, and the potential for other realities, while graphic narrative adaptations of a literary work highlight other ways of seeing and interacting with a text. Graphic narratives encompass worlds beyond fiction as well, with graphic memoirs and textbooks in a wide range of fields from rhetoric to literary theory, history, and science.
