Multimedia updates: Transnational Solidarity and Visual Culture

The video recordings of the international symposium “Transnational solidarity and visual culture: resistance and revolutionary memories from WWII to the Cold War” (Université Grenoble Alpes, 24-25 June 2019) are now available in our Multimedia section.

The international symposium aimed to open up an innovative field of research on transnational solidarity movements crisscrossing cultural history and visual culture.
