Tyler Goldberger, doctoral candidate in History: “The Cold War and U.S.-Spain Relations”
Today, Americans seldom give thought to Spain’s relationship with the United States, but Spain was pivotal to twentieth-century American ideological transformations. In this talk, Tyler Goldberger, doctoral candidate in History at William & Mary, will examine the impact of Spain’s political landscape on twentieth century American ideologies, examining how concerns over fascism during World War II became fears of communism during the Cold War. Learn about broader currents of transatlantic activism in response to these movements and how the Cold War affected the world beyond the U.S. and Soviet Union.
The Emerging Scholars Series is offered in partnership with the Williamsburg Regional Library. Free & open to the public.
