Dean's Seminar - From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic

Trieste played a key role in the early Cold War, mainly due to its geo-political position on a borderline in south-central Europe. Through an examination of film from both sides of the Iron Curtain, this paper explores the ways in which Trieste's fractured and divided identity aligned itself with and came to reflect the polarizations of the Cold War era.
