Cinema was one of the main theatres of the ‘cultural Cold War’. Star actors, directors, screenwriters on both sides of the Iron Curtain took an active part in constructing the images of the American and Soviet enemies. Even the 1960s studies described images of ‘enemy number one’ created by Soviet and American propaganda as ‘mirror’ images. A comparative analysis of enemy images will reveal general patterns of the ‘cinematic Cold War’ and specific features commonly found in films of the two superpowers. We propose that the images of the enemy should be considered as a reason for reflection on discursive shifts, the evolution of fears, and the transformation of the relations of culture and ideology during the Cold War. The study of film images of the enemy during the Cold War seems even more relevant because they continue to influence the mutual perception of Russia and the United States. This happens also because they are actively used in current domestic and foreign policies. We hope that the study of the methods of constructing and exploiting enemy images will make it possible to contribute to a better understanding between the peoples of Russia and the United States.

 

Therefore, the conference focuses on a comparative analysis of:

 

Thematic fields are:

1 The images of the enemy: An interdisciplinary approach.

 

2 The images of American and Soviet enemies in the Soviet and American Cold War cultures:

 

3 The images of American and Soviet enemies in the Soviet and American Cold War cinema:

 

4  Cinematic images of Soviet and American Cold War enemies today:
