2011 International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War
Los Angeles, 21-23 avril 2011 [Santa Barbara, 14-16 avril 2011]
Date limite : 4 février 2011
The Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS) of the University of California at Santa Barbara, the George Washington University Cold War Group (GWCW), and the LSE IDEAS Cold War Studies Programme of the London School of Economics and Political Science (CWSP) are pleased to announce their 2011 International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War, to take place at the University of California at Santa Barbara on April 21-23, 2011.
The conference is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to present papers and receive critical feedback from peers and experts in the field. We encourage submissions by graduate students working on any aspect of the Cold War, broadly defined. Of particular interest are papers that employ newly available primary sources or nontraditional methodologies. To be considered, each prospective participant should submit a two-page proposal and a brief academic c.v. (in Word or pdf format) to Salim Yaqub at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 4, 2011. Notification of acceptance will occur by February 25. Successful applicants will be expected to email their papers (no longer than 25 pages) by March 28. The author of the strongest paper will have an opportunity to publish his or her article in the journal Cold War History. For further information, contact Salim Yaqub at the aforementioned email address.
The conference sessions will be chaired by prominent faculty members from UCSB, GWU, LSE, and elsewhere. The organizers will cover accommodation costs of admitted student participants for the duration of the conference, but students will need to cover the costs of their travel to UCSB.
In 2003, UCSB and GW first joined their separate spring conferences, and two years later LSE became a co-sponsor. The three cold war centers now hold a jointly sponsored conference each year, alternating among the three campuses. For more information on our three programs, please visit the respective Web sites:
