By Anna Whitelock, Dina Fainberg and James Rodgers, published 4th January 2022


History, politics and journalism are intertwined. In this webinar (filmed in December 2021) Professor Anna Whitelock and members of her department from City, University of London explore the inter-related history, politics and journalism of Russia and the Cold War. First, Dina Fainberg explores Soviet relations with the world under Nikita Khrushchev: the Cold War and competition with the US, the space race, and outreach to decolonising nations in the Global South. James Rodgers follows with a talk on the way that President Vladimir Putin has drawn on history to promote domestic and foreign policy objectives during his time in office, and also include some thoughts on the challenges for journalists on covering big moments in history. Finally, there was a chance for questions and Anna Whitelock discusses doing History at university, tips on applying and an introduction to City's new BA course in History Politics and Journalism.
