Graduate Student Cold War Conference
May 2-4, 2003 at UC Santa Barbara
The Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) is pleased to announce a graduate student conference on the Cold War co-organized by two CWIHP partners, The UC Santa Barbara Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS) and the George Washington University Cold War Group (GWCW). The conference will be held at the University of California, Santa Barbara, on May 2-4, 2003. The programs have held separate spring conferences for the past several years; this one will inaugurate a new, jointly sponsored conference to be held at each campus in alternating years. The conference is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to present papers and receive critical feedback from peers and experts in the field. Each paper will have a faculty discussant, and there will be a keynote address by a distinguished scholar in the field.
We encourage submissions by graduate students working on any aspect of the Cold War. Proposals, including a brief CV and one-page abstract, should be emailed to conference coordinator John Sbardellati by December 31, 2002. The conference chair is Professor Fredrik Logevall of UCSB.
