The Cold War was said to be a battle between the forces of "Communism" and "Capitalism." But what do these ideologically-loaded categories look like in practice? This course explores Communist and Capitalist economic and political systems as they played out in East Central Europe (1945 to the present), focusing on people's daily lives, their material culture, their understanding of their rights as citizens, and their political position between East and West. Students will follow two countries from the region throughout the course. Feature films from East Central Europe will constitute part of the required assignments.

No prior knowledge of the region is expected or necessary.
