Imagining the Abominable: Soviet Science, Popular Culture, and the Search for the Snowman

Thu, Mar 22 2018 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Location: 
Reese Psychology & Education Building, 302

Lecture by Dr. Carolin Roeder, Postdoctoral Fellow, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science. 

Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch—the legendary Abominable Snowman has many names. Popularized in the 1950s, the creature wanders freely between the realms of folklore, popular culture, and pseudo-science. Yet, who would have thought that it was in the Soviet Union where tales of a snezhnyi chelovek created not only a community of lay enthusiasts but also received serious attention from established scholars of the Academy of Science? Tracing the career of the Soviet Snowman, this talk will show that “yetis are good to think with” and explore what the creature can reveal about the relationship between Soviet science, ideology, and transnational popular culture in the Cold War. 

Reception to follow.
