FIFTH ANNUAL GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE ON THE COLD WAR
University of California, Santa Barbara
May 19-20, 2000
The Cold War History Group (COWHIG) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, announces a call for papers for its fifth annual graduate student conference on the Cold War, to be held on the campus of UCSB May 19-20, 1999.
COWHIG is pleased to welcome Professor Larry Berman (University of California-Davis) as the keynote speaker. He will address the issue of how historians and political scientists can learn from each other in producing scholarship on the Cold War. Professor Berman is the author of numerous books and articles, and is a leading authority on presidential decisionmaking in foreign affairs. He is at work on a study of the Vietnam War in 1969-75, to be published by The Free Press.
All proposals and inquiries about the conference should be sent by email to Jennifer Baker, conference coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for paper proposals is DECEMBER 20, 1999.
The Cold War History Group also invites faculty participation as commentators and panel chairs. If you would like to participate in this way, please contact Jennifer Baker, conference coordinator: email@example.com
Proposals for papers dealing with the Cold War are welcomed from graduate students in any discipline. Our goal is to provide a forum for a diverse and far-reaching discussion of Cold War history. In addition to diplomatic and international topics, we welcome papers that address social and cultural dimensions of Cold War history.
Please include the following information with your proposal: a one-page abstract of the paper, a brief curriculum vita, and contact information.
The Cold War History Group is dedicated to promoting discussion and the exchange of ideas on topics related to the study of the Cold War, broadly conceived, and acts as a forum to discuss research in progress. COWHIG draws its participants from a range of historical perspectives and academic disciplines. In addition to the annual student conference, COWHIG sponsors special events including guest lectures and graduate student workshops led by recognized experts in the field.
