La Guerra Fredda in Asia Orientale, 1945-1991. Cultura, società e politica tramite la lente dei media.

Il corso tratterà degli equilibri e dei cambiamenti in Asia Orientale durante la Guerra fredda. L'Asia Orientale e Sud-orientale furono al ventro della guerra tra i blocchi: la nascita della RPC, le guerre di Corea e del Vietnam, l'"allenaza" fra Giappone e USA e il nodo di Okinawa sono solo alcuni esempi dell'importanza cruciale dell'Asia orientale durante la Guerra Fredda. Decolonizzazione, nazionalismi e imperialismi, crescita economica, cambiamenti sociali, frizioni politiche e militari hanno contribuito a definire quella che è l'Asia orientale, e il Mondo globalizzato, di oggi. Il corso esplorerà le numerose verità, i miti e la propaganda, di questo periodo storico, con particolare attenzione ai media, alla cultura "alta" e popolare, sia in Asia che in America e nell'URSS
