This workshop re-examines the assumption that ethnic politics had no place in the Cold War. If, as often stated "ethno-nationalism" was indeed submerged, managed or obscured by a perceptual “fog” (Daniel Moynihan) how did this take place? Are valid generalisations possible about ethnic politics on both sides of the Iron Curtain? The workshop looks at particular ethnic conflicts (from Transylvania to Tirol) and by doing so seeks to shed new light on the complex relationship between “low” and “high” politics and on the Cold War itself.
The Workshop is the first of a series of three organised with the generous financial support of the British Academy.
Loughborough University, England, Schofield A204 3-5 September
