The conference “On the Threshold of a New Era” draws on the broader attention given to the breakthrough year of 1918 to open up space for critical thinking about historical events and processes connected with the formation of Czechoslovakia in the social, cultural, political and economic context of post-war Europe, and especially in the Central European region. We have selected either topics which have been neglected, or, on the contrary, those which have been generating extraordinarily lively and conflicting discussions and thus raising new questions and research opportunities.

The Cold War, with its bald confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union, has been widely depicted in film. Starting even before the conflict actually began with Ernst Lubitsch’s portrayals of communism in Ninotschka (1939), and ranging from Stanley Kubrick’s openly “Cold War” Dr. Strangelove (1963) to Fred Schepisi’s The Russia House (1990), Hollywood’s obsession with the Cold War, the Soviets/Russians, communism, and the political and ideological differences between the U.S. and Russia were pronounced.
Process—the blog of the Organization of American Historians, The Journal of American History, and The American Historian—invites proposals and submissions for a series of upcoming posts about 1968. For the fiftieth anniversary of that tumultuous year, we welcome materials pertaining to a wide range of events in the United States and abroad . We are open to essays that focus on the history of those events as well as those that explore their connections to current affairs. We accept pitches from anyone engaged in the practice of U.S.
