We are seeking paper presenters and a commentator for a panel at the annual meeting of the AHA in Atlanta (2016) investigating how  transnational exchanges of ideas, images, and goods shaped women’s experiences, roles, thinking, and politics during the global Cold War. To date we have papers examining this topic in the contexts of Cuba and Czechoslovakia.

CFP: Resistance and Opposition to National Socialism. GSA Annual Conference, Washington D.C. 1-4 October 2015

Seventy years after the end of WWII, we would like to propose, during the next conference of the German Studies Association in Washington D.C. (October 1-4, 2015) three panels related to the topics of resistance and opposition to National Socialism and German occupation. The aim of the panels is to present new and original perspectives of research in this area especially, but not exclusively, by young scholars.
