Socialism Goes Global: Cold War Connections Between the 'Second' and 'Third Worlds'

Lead Research Organisation: University of Exeter
Department Name: History

Abstract

This project addresses a fundamental aspect of 20th century globalisation that has been almost entirely ignored by scholars: the transmission, circulation and reception of values, cultures, and beliefs between what western contemporaries called the 'Second' and 'Third Worlds'. Following the Second World War, the countries of eastern Europe radically recast their global role by re-imagining their relationships with Africa, Latin America and south-east Asia. They developed new forms of global knowledge and new institutions to support a wide-ranging program of socialist 'export': theatre and film, economic and scientific expertise, humanitarian aid and political ideals-all were essential to eastern Europe's grand effort to translate 'socialist modernity' globally. The project also reshaped the 'socialist metropole', as post-colonial cultures were imported into eastern Europe through, for example, mass media, political solidarity movements, and the presence of 'Third World' students, workers and exiles.

An international team of scholars will examine this critical Second-Third World encounter across a range of east European countries, from the Soviet Union to the GDR, providing an intricate regional mapping of the different forms and geographical foci of this transmission, and their varying impacts. How was the encounter shaped by Moscow, by Eastern bloc countries' specific national histories as colonisers or colonised, or by intra-bloc competition for influence? How did the interactions enabled by this encounter shape concepts central to 20th century history, such as development, political rights, modernity, mass culture, and race? What impact did the project of 'exporting socialist modernity' globally have on the experience of living under socialism, on transnational Cold War debates, and on the fate of socialist systems more broadly?

This project has the potential to impact beyond its own temporal and geographical boundaries, not only opening out a new field, but also transforming established ones. Drawing in specialists on other world regions, this project's collaborative activities will offer new approaches to globalisation - notably around periphery-periphery interaction, and the circulation of ideas between non-western worlds. Moreover, it will transform dominant approaches to postwar socialism, the rise and fall of which has been studied largely in national or regional terms. Rather, the project examines the socialist world as a dynamic hub of global exchange. In addition, it makes a signal contribution to postwar European history, addressing the impact of decolonisation in a half of Europe previously ignored.

This project will also deliver broader insights into the transfer of knowledge and practices. First, it provides a powerful lens through which to consider the relationship between 20th century political ideologies, the transfer/ circulation of ideas, and globalisation. Second, it develops approaches for, and collaborations with, other area studies: in so doing it helps to overcome the boundaries between regional specialists that inhibit understanding the history of a globalised world. Third, its concern with the relationship between authoritarian systems and the translation of values abroad, and between cultural transmission and political instability, has clear contemporary policy relevance, as 'soft power' politics (e.g. by Russia and China in the developing world) continue to play a major role. Last, through a BFI-run film festival and a proposed BBC radio series on 'red globalisation', scheduled to co-incide with the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, we will make a significant contribution to the development of a broader public understanding of how cultures reshape themselves in the process of translating values to, and from, other parts of the globe.

Planned Impact

The impact of this project is multi-dimensional, and will benefit different audiences.

Through our collaboration with the security studies' institution the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), we will build relationships with policy makers to enable a productive dialogue through which the policy relevance of our work on 'authoritarianism and soft power' can become part of our research agenda. The phenomenon of 'soft power' has gained increasing traction amongst policy makers over the last five years, as shown most recently by the establishment of the parliamentary 'Committee on Soft Power and the UK's Influence' (appointed May 2013), and the increases in EU funding for this area of Europe's foreign policy. From the 'Soft Power and Authoritarianism' conference, we have the option of producing a collection that brings scholars with a historical perspective into dialogue with those engaged in contemporary 'soft power' initiatives (see below under 'dissemination'). In the second half of the project, we will be in a strong position to produce policy information and talks, which may be given at RUSI, or through the FCO's academic policy briefings, or at the EU Commission's policy workshops (of which Mark has experience). The theme has clear relevance for understanding international politics today, and should be of interest to policy planners working on the appeal of cultural diplomacy more generally.

We will also lead a number of major cultural initiatives that will publicize our approach to globalisation and transregional cultural transfer to a much broader national (and potentially international) audience. Centrally, we wish to communicate an understanding of how cultures interact and reshape themselves in the process of translating values to, and from, other parts of the globe. As part of the centenary of the Russian Revolution in autumn 2017, we will organise a 'film festival' with the British Film Institute (BFI) on the subject of 'Global Socialism'. We will use a range of films from the 1920s to the 1980s, some of which will have been analysed as part of our academic research project, to explore the way in which socialist filmmakers in both the 'Second World' and other world regions represented their political and cultural projects for a world audience, sought to promote their revolutions abroad, depicted an ever growing socialist world in the post-world period, and charted disillusionment with, and resistance to, the global socialist project. We will have an impact on a broader public through educational initiatives at the BFI, a festival guide/ catalogue which will remain online after the festival's end, and events organised by the BFI to publicise this initiative in national media.

In our contemporary moment, when aspects of neo-liberal globalisation are being questioned and rethought, historicising globalisation's growth in the postwar period, for a popular audience, has much potentially to add to a broader public conversation. For this reason, we aim to write a series of programmes for BBC Radio 4 on the topic of 'Red Globalisation'. This will explore attempts both by socialist states and international organisations to create an alternative socialist form of globalisation, and their ultimate failure in the face of a neo-liberal model. It will be written in a popular format that uses appealing accounts from our research - such as the role of eastern European experts in the modernisation of Iraq or Libya; the Cold War competition between e.g. Radio Moscow and the BBC in Africa and Asia; or the role of football in taking eastern bloc culture to Latin America - in order to tell this story in a compelling and appealing manner. The BBC have expressed a strong interest in scheduling this series to co-incide with the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, and the BFI festival. It would be additionally broadcast via i-player and other media: these can potentially reach a broad international audience.
 
Title Organisation of an exhibition of Tito memorabilia 
Description Creation of a major exhibtion from archive material in Belgrade, Serbia. The exhibition toured to Oxford (Pitt Rivers Museum) in October 2017 (until April 2018), and will go to Los Angeles (Wende) later in 2018. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact The exhibition Tito in Africa - Picturing Solidarity was opened in the Museum of Yugoslavia on June 27, 2017. As a product of collaboration between the team of researchers on the project Socialism Goes Global of the University of Exeter and the Museum of Yugoslavia, the exhibition presented a selection of over 130 photographs from the photo archives of the Museum of Yugoslavia, recorded during 1960s and 1970s, on the trips of Josip Broz Tito and his wife Jovanka Broz to African countries. Those photos depict meetings with important historical figures, including Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, the first Prime Minister and President of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah. In addition to photographs, the exhibition presented film records, the gifts that Tito and Jovanka Broz received, abstracts from the African newspapers' reports on these visits, as well as documents and notes explaining the time context. Although it was planned that exhibition will be open until September 3, 2017, it was opened till the end of October, because of the great public interest in the show. The exhibition Tito in Africa - Pictures of Solidarity, which was visited in Belgrade by approximately 55,000 people, stirred a great attention among the media, which reported about it during the opening, as well as throughout its duration. A press conference and a guided tour took place on the day before the official opening on June 26, attended by all the authors of the project and curators of the exhibition. There were 10 editorial boards present (televisions RTS 1, Studio B, press agencies Tanjug, Beta, newspapers Blic, Danas, Srpski telegraf, and radio stations Radio Beograd 1, Radio Beograd 2, Radio 202), and the news and announcements were broadcasted by almost all electronic and print media that follow the culture. The opening of the exhibition was attended by a large number of visitors, as well as by officials from the Ministry of Culture and ambassadors of African countries (from Nigeria, Tunisia, Algeria, Namibia, Egypt, Angola, and Guinea). In his speech at the opening of the exhibition, His Excellency G.Abdelhamid Chebchoub from Algeria emphasized that "Apart from giving special recognition to Tito's work in Africa, an exhibition organized by the Museum of Yugoslavia is also an opportunity to honor all peoples of Africa, united around the same beliefs, and encouraged by the same willpower that an African "Where did solidarity disappear?", Blic, 4 July 2017: "What is most striking at the Tito exhibition in Africa - pictures of solidarity are those images of solidarity. The exhibition shows how we once showed solidarity with others, and how solidarity was common among the small countries, which thus elevated themselves in international diplomacy. This exhibition is a call to all of us to return to these forgotten values."

Description TITO IN AFRICA EXHIBITION We have developed a major new exhibition Tito in Africa - Picturing Solidarity which has so far been shown in Belgrade and Oxford. It first opened at the Museum of Yugoslavia in Belgrade on June 27, 2017 (for images, see https://www.muzej-jugoslavije.org/en/exhibition/tito-u-africi-slike-solidarnosti/ ). It was the product of collaboration between the team of researchers on the project Socialism Goes Global and the Museum of Yugoslavia. The exhibition took advantage of the opening of the archives of the Museum of Yugoslavia to present a selection of materials from the trips of Josip Broz Tito and his wife Jovanka Broz to African countries. Photos depict meetings with important historical figures, including Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, the first Prime Minister and President of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah. In addition, the exhibition presented documentary records; the gifts that Tito and Jovanka Broz received; as well as abstracts from the African newspapers' reports on these visits. The final room was devoted to contemporary reflections on these engagements, including a documentary commissioned specifically for this show. Its aims was to encourage reflection on both the role that Yugoslavia had played globally (much forgotten in the contemporary Balkans) and the reach of solidarity - particularly meaningful in the context of eastern European reactions to the refugee crisis from 2016. Indeed, a major Serbian national daily picked up on this point in its review, titled "Where did solidarity disappear?": "What is most striking at the Tito exhibition in Africa - pictures of solidarity are those images of solidarity. The exhibition shows how we once showed solidarity with others, and how solidarity was common among the small countries, which thus elevated themselves in international diplomacy. This exhibition is a call to all of us to return to these forgotten values." (Blic, 4 July 2017). Although it was planned that exhibition would close on September 3, 2017, it remained open until the end of October, because of the great public interest in the show. It was visited by approximately 56,000 people, including many organised school visits. It received great attention in the media (TV, radio and press) both during its opening, as well as throughout its duration. A press conference and a guided tour took place on the day before the official opening. There were 10 media agencies (televisions RTS 1, Studio B, press agencies Tanjug, Beta, newspapers Blic, Danas, Srpski telegraf, and radio stations Radio Beograd 1, Radio Beograd 2, Radio 202), who all reported in the following days. The opening of the exhibition was attended by a large number of visitors, as well as by officials from the Ministry of Culture and ambassadors of African countries (from Nigeria, Tunisia, Algeria, Namibia, Egypt, Angola, and Guinea). In his speech at the opening of the exhibition, His Excellency G. Abdelhamid Chebchoub from Algeria emphasized that "Apart from giving special recognition to Tito's work in Africa, an exhibition organized by the Museum of Yugoslavia is also an opportunity to honor all peoples of Africa, united around the same beliefs, and encouraged by the same willpower that an African "Where did solidarity disappear?" A 155-page catalogue with four major essays and high quality photographic reproductions was produced: its first print run of 500 sold out. A smaller version of the exhibition then toured to Oxford and The Wende Museum, Los Angeles (June 23 - October 20, 2019). The Oxford opening was promoted - and its impact broadened - through a discussion on BBC Radio 4's Thinking Allowed programme in November 2017 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09czrbq ). For details of the Oxford exhibition, see: https://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/sites/default/files/uploads/boxes/Tito_in_Africa_leaflet.pdf. An exhibition web page was also developed (https://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/Tito_in_Africa). Subsequently, a photographic record of the exhibition was produced when PG commissioned external photographer Ian Cartwright to document the completed exhibition in situ. We are still awaiting evidence of attendance and audience response. In June 2018, the exhibition will open at the Wende Museum in Los Angeles, accompanied by educational activities. We will organise a four-day film event in Bucharest (June 24 and 27, 2019) that will showcase a number feature films which tackle various issues pertaining to building revolutionary societies and anti-colonial struggle in the context of the developing worlds' connections with Eastern Europe. Each movie will be introduced by a Romanian or foreign scholar. The Romanian National Film Archive and the British Council will be partners for the event. FILM FESTIVAL Impact report film festival "Socialist Worlds on Screen: Beyond Black and White" June 24-27 The film festival was organized by the project "Socialism Goes Global" with the goal of bringing to the attention of the public in Bucharest various histories of socialist internationalism and the connections between communist regimes and peoples from the developing world.

Iacob with James Mark was published on the online cultural weekly Lapunkt, a magazine whose primary audience is Romanian academia: https://www.lapunkt.ro/2019/06/lumi-comuniste-pe-ecran-dincolo-de-alb-si-negru-interviu-cu-profesorul-james-mark/ - Interview with Kristin Roth-Ey at the National Cultural Radio Station: https://soundcloud.com/user-97229944/dimi-24-iunie-2019 - Interview with Bogdan C.

We consider that the festival had a unique effect on the public sphere in Bucharest: it brought a new way of discussing about the state socialist past in Romania and Eastern Europe in general by raising awareness about the connections of the region with the Global South. An exemplification of such re-setting of the agenda of public discussion is the an initiative at of the Department of Film & Theatre at the University of Bucharest to collaborate with the Portuguese Cultural Institute in order to organise in the autumn screenings of films about decolonisation. The two people who had this initiative, the editor in chief of "The Glass Ceiling" and Iolanda Vasile (University of Coimbra) were inspired by our film festival, which they both attended and promoted.

Results and Impact This conference aims to provide a truly global account of the rise and entrenchment of the modern neoliberal order. Contributors will consider how neoliberal ideas travelled (or did not travel) across regions and polities; and analyse the how these ideas were translated between groups and regions as embodied behaviours and business practices as well as through the global media and international organisations. As the fate of neoliberalism appears in question across many regions, it is an opportune moment to make sense of its ascendancy on a global scale.

The conference focused on the period starting in the 1960s, which saw great political and economic changes in the so-called "Third World Countries". The process of decolonization, the emergence of independent countries created from former colonies and UN mandates and the efforts of other countries to break away from their dependence on Western powers, the nationalization of industry, whether oil fields in the Middle East or the Suez Canal in Egypt, brought a change in the political orientation of large areas of Asia and Africa. The situation in Cuba had a very specific development. The newly formed independent countries found themselves in the grip of the fight between Soviet and American influence

Results and Impact The exhibition Tito in Africa - Pictures of Solidarity, which was visited in Belgrade by approximately 55,000 people, stirred a great attention among the media, which reported about it during the opening, as well as throughout its duration. A press conference and a guided tour took place on the day before the official opening on June 26, attended by all the authors of the project and curators of the exhibition. There were 10 editorial boards present (televisions RTS 1, Studio B, press agencies Tanjug, Beta, newspapers Blic, Danas, Srpski telegraf, and radio stations Radio Beograd 1, Radio Beograd 2, Radio 202), and the news and announcements were broadcasted by almost all electronic and print media that follow the culture.
The opening of the exhibition was attended by a large number of visitors, as well as by officials from the Ministry of Culture and ambassadors of African countries (from Nigeria, Tunisia, Algeria, Namibia, Egypt, Angola, and Guinea). In his speech at the opening of the exhibition, His Excellency G.Abdelhamid Chebchoub from Algeria emphasized that "Apart from giving special recognition to Tito's work in Africa, an exhibition organized by the Museum of Yugoslavia is also an opportunity to honor all peoples of Africa, united around the same beliefs, and encouraged by the same willpower that an African men be freed from any discrimination and develop on the economic, social and cultural level." Although it was planned that exhibition will be opened until September 3, 2017, it was opened till the end of October, because of the great public interest in the show. The announcements of the exhibition were also published on the internet portals of the Tourist Organization of Serbia and the Tourist Organization of Belgrade, so a number of foreign tourists were among the visitors.
