ENGL6960 - The Cold War
Semester 1, 2012 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Peter Marks
Phone: +61 2 9351 6862
This unit investigates the Cold War through a representative sample of literary and cinematic works. In the couse of the unit we investigate the shifting and shifty geopolitics of the postcolonial period, national and international cultures of paranoia, questions of ideology, gender, nationality, truth and love. We also explore the absurdly humorous possibilities activated by the war that may well be thawing out. The unit suggests that the imaginitive representation of the Cold War has significantly altered public perceptions of the war and government approaches to manipulating those perceptions.
