  • Aspinall Lecturer Dr. Erika Monahan

    Join the Wayne N. and Julia E. Aspinall Foundation and Tomlinson Library for the opening of an exhibit at the library and a presentation from Aspinall Lecturer Dr. Erika Monahan on Tuesday, April 20. The exhibit opens at 6pm in Tomlinson Library and the presentation is at 7pm in the University Center ballroom. 

    The lecture will focus on how in the Cold War, the Soviet Union was America’s political and ideological rival. This rivalry shaped profoundly American encounters with all things Russian well beyond the sphere of geopolitics. Unsurprisingly perhaps, the Russian villain was standard fare in American entertainment. This common trope has outlived the Cold War. Yet, we also find negative tropes about Russians pre-date the ideological rivalry of the Cold War. This talk explores the origins and implications of some enduring tropes about Russians, considering them against the historical record.
