Coffe Hour with Dr. Alice Lovejoy

The Department of Geography, Environmental and Society is holding a Coffee Hour with Dr. Alice Lovejoy on Friday, November 8 at 3:30 in Blegen Hall room 445. She will give a talk titled "Pictures in Motion: Media, Space, and the Cold War."

This talk traces cinema's movement within and beyond postwar Eastern Europe at two moments: 1945-1946 and the 1960s. Examining short nonfiction films (military films; instructional films) imported to the region at the end of World War II; circulated within it by mobile cinemas; and sent to film festivals throughout Europe, it discusses the maps that these "moving images" make visible; maps that offer a new perspective on media and space during the Cold War.
