The University of Sussex is hosting a symposium this autumn that will assess continuity and change in British attitudes towards the United States, from the start of the Second World War to the late Cold War. Rather than concentrate, as is conventionally the case, on political and diplomatic elites, our focus is on artists, writers and the general public.
The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation awards grants of up to $2,200 each in support of research in the archival collections of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, part of the system of Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. The collections are rich on U.S. government domestic policies, diplomacy, and national political affairs in the 1970s. A grant helps defray the travel and living expenses of a research trip to the Ford Library.
CALL FOR SHARING (up to August 31, 2018)
The symposium aims at sharing with the public the state of knowledge on contemporary issues related to The Rise of Asia, i.e. the nuclear issue. The public consists of scholars and students interested in Asia.
