Research project: Transcending the Cold War: Transnational Mediators, Professional Communities, and Hungarian-American Exchanges (1960s-1970s)

As a New Europe College Fellow, I will work on my book project that aims to reimagine the Cold War as an era of transnational exchange. I explore scholarly and artistic interactions between Hungary and the U.S. during the 1960s-70s, from scholarship programs to international conferences to literary residencies. I show that these collaborations were made possible by transnational mediators from both East and West, who ushered in processes of inter-reliant modernization on both “sides.”
