The Soviet Poster series brings together faculty and students to discuss select posters from a collection of over 1,000 Soviet-era objects recently gifted to the Yale University Art Gallery by Allan Chasanoff, B.A. 1961.
Drawing on the academic diversity of the Program in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (REEES) and arts communities at Yale, these conversations seek to inspire new and interdisciplinary ways of thinking about the signifi cance of the poster, both 
in and beyond the contexts of Soviet media, history, and politics.
