This event, sponsored by the Canadian War Museum and the Brookstreet Hotel is being organized to bring together a broad range of professional scholars, artists, filmmakers, teachers, museum professionals and journalists who are involved in the exploration of themes in Cold War history, and who shape how the conflict is understood today.
Held at one of Canada’s most distinctive Cold War sites, this conference will be a forum for these diverse voices to reflect on and share their approach to the Cold War in different media. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Christian Ostermann, is the Director of the Cold War History International Project (CWIHP) at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.
Before joining CWIHP in January 1997 as associate director, Dr. Christian Ostermann worked as a research fellow at the National Security Archive, a non-governmental research institute and repository based at George Washington University. He is a co-editor and a Senior Research Fellow, and he also served as a Lecturer in History and International Affairs at George Washington University, Professorial Lecturer at Georgetown University, and has been a consultant on several historical documentaries.
Please join us and explore and reflect on the Cold War and its influences, past and present.
