Collective imaginations of nuclear warfare were a central battleground of the Cold War, fought through war-games and fictitious scenarios.
This panel debate explores the 'imaginary Cold War', from how specific media and national cultures created it to the implications for our understanding of the Cold War and the atomic bomb.
This event is part of the Rethinking the Cold War Lecture Series, a collaboration between the Cold War Studies Project at LSE IDEAS and the Cold War Cultures network at the University of Sheffield, two leading centres in the UK for the study of the Cold War.
This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. If you have any questions please e-mail us here.
