“The Cold War and its Contexts”
The 2005 UCSB-GWU-LSE International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War
(Incorporating the former CCWS-GWCW and COWHIG conferences)
29 April to 30 April 2005 at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB)
Deadline: 15 December 2004
The UCSB Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS), the George Washington Cold War Group (GWCW), and the LSE Cold War Studies Centre (CWSC) are pleased to announce their 2005 International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War, which will be held at UCSB from 29-30 April 2005. 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, broadly defined. Proposals, including a brief CV and one-page abstract, should be submitted to the conference Web site (web address provided below), or directly to the e-mail address listed below by 15 December 2004. This Web site describes the conference in greater detail and further questions may be directed to the conference coordinator, George Fujii, at the aforementioned e-mail address. The conference chair is Professor Tsuyoshi Hasegawa of UCSB.
We also seek faculty members to serve as chairs and discussants. Those interested in serving in this capacity should contact George Fujii directly.
Prior to 2003, CCWS and GWCW held separate spring conferences; they now hold a jointly sponsored conference held at each campus in alternating years. Starting with this conference, LSE joins as a co-sponsor and it will host our 2006 conference. For more information on our three programs, please visit their respective Web sites:
