  • Colleen Anderson

    Colleen Anderson

    Lecturer

    BioColleen Anderson studies the culture, history, and technology of Cold War Germany. She received her PhD from Harvard University in 2017 and has received funding from the American Historical Association & NASA, the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies, DAAD, the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies, and the Central European History Society. Her current project, “‘Two Kinds of Infinity’: East Germany, West Germany, and the Cold War Cosmos, 1945-1995,” studies Germans’ participation in and imaginations about outer space exploration during the Cold War. Her manuscript traces the changing ways in which East and West Germans both saw their own futures as connected to space travel and used outer space to confront the past and envision the world around them.
