In the 2016 Spring semester, to mark the 25th anniversary of the end of the Cold War , the Graduate Program in International Affairs at Milano School holds a series of panel discussions and film screenings (curated by Professor Nina Khrushcheva and MA candidate Gabrielle Belli). The series aims to explore the symbiotic relations--both past and contemporary--between the media and politics that trace back to the golden age of Hollywood, the times of the Cold War.
