ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
The latest issue of Central European History went live online on June 28 and should be shipping to individual and institutional subscribers shortly.

The issue can be accessed at https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/central-european-history/latest-issue.
The conference announced on the cfp below was originally designed for Europeanists, but was opened up to all world areas following multiple requests by non-Europeanists to participate. The cfp has therefore been revised and the deadline extended to August 15, 2018.
