Routledge Studies in Cultures of the Global Cold War

About the Series

Routledge Studies in Cultures of the Global Cold War aims to invigorate research on the Cold War beyond the US-USSR bipolar framework, to focus on what is now called the Global South - Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. These sites have both been impacted by, and have transformed in turn, the global engagement of the Cold War and its cultural and political discourses. Moreover, the series focuses on cultural production in these regions to understand how ideological battles intertwined with direct violence in the Cold War’s "hot zones." The series invites monographs and edited collections that historicize and trace genealogies of the conceptual tools and methodologies informing current debates stemming from the Cold War period.
