Call for Papers: Reminder to applicants--Deadline: January 15, 2006 for submissions to participate in the 2006 LSE-GWU-UCSB International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War. Please see application and conference details below.
The Cold War Studies Centre (CWSC) of the London School of Economics and Political Science, the Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS) of the University of California Santa Barbara, and the Cold War Group (GWCW) of the George Washington University, in cooperation with Cambridge University, are pleased to announce their 2006 International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War, which will be held in London on 06-08 April 2006. The sessions will take place at the LSE and at the British National Archives at Kew outside London.
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. Two page Proposals, including a brief academic C.V., should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 15 January 2006. Successful applicants will be expected to email their papers by Wednesday 1 March 2006. Further questions may be directed to the conference coordinators, Garret Martin, Louise Woodroofe, or Elizabeth Benning at the aforementioned e-mail address.
The conference sessions will be chaired by prominent members of faculty from above universities. Other members of faculty interested in serving in this capacity or as discussants should contact the conference coordinators directly.
The accommodation cost of students-applicants will be covered by the organisers. For other organisational updates, please check the CWSC website regularly.
In addition, we are pleased to announce the creation of a new prize, as part of their annual international graduate student conference on the Cold War.
The best paper presented at the event will be published in the journal Cold War History, subject to all revisions required by the editors. The conference discussants will provide a first selection, and the final decision will be taken by the directors of the host institutions.
In 2003, CCWS and GWCW first joined their separate spring conferences, and two years later, CWSC became a co-sponsor. The three centres now hold a jointly sponsored conference held at each campus in alternating years. For more information on participating institutions, please visit the respective Web sites:
