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 a number of academic experts in the field.
For the full conference programme please see www.heirs-eu.org. For information on getting to Reading please see www.reading.ac.uk/maps.
HEIRS is a postgraduate network designs to foster collaboration among postgraduate researchers. We would like to acknowledge the instrumental support given by our supporters: Arts and Humanities Research Council, University of Reading, CEISR University of Portsmouth and the Royal Historical Society.
