UniversitÓ di Trento, LSE IDEAS-Cold War Studies Programme, and the European University Institute are jointly convening the Fourth Annual European Summer School on Cold War History at the UniversitÓ di Trento, 5-8 September 2012.
The Summer School is a unique conference specifically for PhD students and early career researchers. It consist of workshops and panel sessions focused on submitted research papers, debates on historiography, broad interpretative issues and new research directions. The school offers an informal atmosphere in which new ideas and research directions can be shared and debated, be it in panel sessions, or over morning coffee or dinner.
The school has a very high student to faculty ratio (2:1) allowing participants to have in depth discussions about their research with established scholars in the field. PhD students and early career researchers (no more than 3 years from PhD completion) are invited to submit proposals. We encourage submissions on any aspect of the Cold War, broadly defined. Of particular interest are papers that make use of newly available primary sources and innovative methodologies.
New for 2012 the best paper will be submitted for review to the journal Cold War History.
The call for papers closes 29 April. For information on how to apply please visit the school website.
