« The Baltic Sea Region and the Cold War »
Tartu (Estonie), 27-28 novembre 2010
The historiography of the Cold War circles usually around the great players and the major events and developments. The Baltic Sea region seemed to play only a peripheral role in this context. Nevertheless, the last 20 years saw a blossoming of national approaches to the history of this region. In the light of new research in recently opened archives, it turns out that the role of the region before and during the Cold War was more diverse and probably more important than previously expected. The impact of the Cold War even on so-called neutral countries was obviously larger than thought. The workshop aims at bringing together scholars and PhD-students working on the history of the region during the Cold War and to overcome the isolation of national historiography.
