In the 1950s and 1960s, images of children appeared everywhere, from movies to milk cartons, their smiling faces used to sell everything, including war. Soviet and American leaders too used emotionally charged images of children to create popular support for their policies at home and abroad. This live interview with Margaret Peacock will discuss her work on the deep symmetry in how Soviet and American propagandists mobilized similar images of children to similar ends, despite their differences.
