Cold War & Contemporary Culture Wars

The Modern History Research Group of the University of Amsterdam invites you to attend a talk by Professor Todd Weir (Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, Groningen) on Wednesday 7 February. Todd’s paper is entitled: “A Prehistory of Post-Truth: What Cold War Debates Over Worldview Teach Us About Contemporary Culture Wars.”


Wednesday 7 February, 16:00-18:00 (followed by drinks of course!)

Bushuis/Oost-Indisch Huis | kamer F2.08B

Kloveniersburgwal 48 | 1012 CX Amsterdam

Todd’s research has focused on secularism, religion, transnationalism, and ‘culture wars’ in Germany and other countries during the 19th century, Weimar Republic, and the Cold War. You can read more about Todd’s background here.

All are welcome! And please pass along this invitation to anyone else (including Masters and doctoral students) who you think might be interested in attending.

Best wishes,
