Dear H-Diplo readers,
In keeping with its standard practice, H-Diplo will implement a moratorium on our in-house publications from 06 August until 03 September. We anticipate a lively 2018/19 series of publications and discussions.
Please note that we have filled the panel. Thank you all for your interest! If you still want to construct a panel, try using the SMH Panel Builder: http://www.smh-hq.org/2019panels.html
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is announcing the opening of its 2019-2020 Fellowship competition. The Center, located in the heart of Washington, DC, awards approximately 15-20 academic year residential fellowships to academics, practitioners, journalists, former public officials, and independent experts from any country with outstanding project proposals on global issues. The Center welcomes policy-relevant proposals which complement the Center's programming priorities.
It's a little old now, but I got to record a podcast with Sarah Snyder about her new book. We spent an hour talking about the book's content as well as some bigger questions about human rights as an issue in the United States.

We are seeking two more panelists for the Society for Military History 2019 Annual Meeting. The panel would explore any and all aspects of the development and doctrine of nuclear weapons during the Truman and Eisenhower administrations. Papers that examine policymaking and military strategy/doctrine surrounding nuclear weapons (broadly defined) are particularly welcome. Papers do not necessarily have to focus on the American context.
