Wulf to lecture Sept. 18 at Fuller Lodge

-A A +A

Andrew Wulf will speak at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 at Fuller Lodge in Los Alamos at part of the Los Alamos Historical Society’s 2018-19 lecture series, “Anniversary Lecture Series.”

Wulf’s lecture, entitled “Cold War Cultural Diplomacy,” will revisit the American National Exhibition in Moscow, which for six weeks in the summer of 1959 showed more than 2.7 million Russians various aspects of the American way of life.

Wulf investigated how this complex cultural diplomatic effort was intended to shape a very specific public opinion.

The story of how the vision for this curious policy tool took shape is based on a variety of first-person accounts of those involved with the project. Perhaps, he speculates, this exhibition, and other Cold War cultural exchanges, hold important implications for current decision-making regarding the crucial American presence at the Dubai Expo in 2020. This series is sponsored by Raffi Andonian and Nicole Kliebert.
