LSE Cold War Research Seminar 2011/12

LSE Cold War Research Seminar

October 2011-May 2012

LSE, London


The Cold War Studies Programme, with the Department of International History at LSE, organises the graduate and staff seminar on the Cold War (HY510). It is convened by members of the International History Department, with active participation from other faculty in related departments at the LSE, such as International Relations and Government.  Presentations are given by second and third year PhD students and staff in International History at the LSE, as well students and staff from other universities in London and the surrounding areas.  The seminar seeks to provide a forum for new research in the field. To this end, the seminar usually begins with a general discussion of new publications in the field, followed by a 45 minute presentation, followed by discussion.  It is an ideal forum for those working on chapters of their PhD, journal articles, or sections of monographs or books. It is open to all PhD students and staff. Exceptional masters students may attend with the permission of the convenor. This year the seminar will be co-chaired by Arne Westad and Piers Ludlow.

If you would like to take part in the seminar, please email the course organiser (, stating your affilliation and area of research.
