The complete devastation of the European continent following six years of total war precipitated the early cooperation efforts of the immediate post-1945 period. The foundations of European integration and the development of the Cold War were thus undoubtedly and inextricably linked.
Despite this simple claim, academic research on the question of European integration and the Cold War has apparently been less dynamic.
The aim of the Sixth HEIRS conference lies is correcting this apparent lacuna through 18 postgraduate/post-doctoral presentations. In addition to this, we will be joined by:
Patrick Major, University of Reading, UK
Thorsten Borring Olesen, Aarhus University, Denmark
Leopolodo Nuti, University of Roma Tre, Italy
Wolfram Kaiser, University of Portsmouth, UK
Dr Linda Risso, University of Reading, UK
The conference is free and open to all but registration before the conference is essential. To register please email the School Administrator, Jacqui Fletcher, on firstname.lastname@example.org stating which day(s) you wish to attend and whether parking is needed.
