LSE-GWU-UCSB Graduate Student Conference 2018

The LSE IDEAS Cold War Studies Project (CWSP), the George Washington University Cold War Group (GWCW), and the Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS) of the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) are pleased to announce their 2018 International Graduate Conference on the Cold War, to take place at the London School of Economics from 3-5 May 2018.

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. Of particular interest are papers that employ newly available primary sources or non-traditional methodologies.

To be considered, each prospective participant should submit a two-page proposal and a brief academic CV (in Word or pdf format) to Dr Luc-André Brunet at by 8 January 2018. Notification of acceptance will occur by 5 February.

Successful applicants will be expected to e-mail their papers (no longer than 25 pages) by 29 March.

The author of the strongest paper will be awarded the Saki Ruth Dockrill Memorial Prize of £100 to be spent on books in any form. The winner will also have an opportunity to publish his or her article in the journal Cold War History.

For further information, please contact Luc-André Brunet:

The conference sessions will be chaired by prominent faculty members from LSE, GWU, UCSB, and elsewhere. The organisers will cover accommodation costs of admitted student participants for the duration of the conference, but students will need to cover the costs of their travel to LSE.
