We invite proposals for the Autumn Term session of next academic year’s LSE-Sciences Po Seminar in Contemporary International History (HY510). The seminar welcomes presentations from faculty and PhD students at any institution on any aspect of contemporary international history, with a particular focus on the global Cold War, broadly defined.

The seminar is an ideal environment to share works in progress, such as PhD chapters, journal articles, or sections of monographs and books by providing a forum for the discussion of new research by PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty members from across the world. Seminars will be usually held in London, at LSE, on Wednesdays, 4-6pm and in Paris, at Sciences Po, on Wednesdays, 5-7pm, between October and December 2020.

Presenters will be asked to submit a 20/25-page paper ten days before their presentation, to be circulated to participants beforehand. Presentations are typically 30-45 minutes and are followed by a Q&A discussion.

Applicants are welcome to apply to both the London and Paris seminars and should submit a provisional title, a brief (one-page maximum) abstract, and a CV by Friday 19 June 2020.

Those interested in presenting in Paris should submit these materials to Joshua Leung at Those interested in presenting in London are invited to complete this form.
