Proposals are invited for the Second Annual Conference of the BISAGlobal Nuclear Order Working Group:Global Challenges in a Nuclear Armed WorldTo be held on September 2, 2014 at the University of Bristol, UK
We welcome paper proposals on all topics relating to global nuclear order, but particularly from those seeking to place nuclear weapons within the broader context of international politics, and from those working in other disciples (such as History, Area Studies, International Relations, International Political Economy and Comparative Politics) where the presence and importance of nuclear weapons has been underexplored. In doing this, we hope to facilitate a fruitful interdisciplinary space for work willing to move beyond the traditional canon of nuclear analysis, and to place nuclear weapons issues within wider international security debates, practice and scholarship. Submissions from post-graduate students, nonacademics and those working in other disciplines are therefore particularly welcome.
Please send an abstract of no more than 200 words by 1st August 2014 to Dr Benoit Pelopidas
If you do not have institutional funding but would like to participate, a small number of bursaries will be available to cover transportation costs. You should indicate this when you submit your abstract.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Italy’s Nuclear Experience in an International and Comparative Perspective
University of Trieste, November 13-15, 2014
This conference aims at analyzing the history of Italy’s nuclear energy policies during the Cold War, by placing the Italian case in a comparative perspective and highlighting the importance of the international context in shaping the country’s specific experience. It builds upon a previous conference, organized by Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A and the University of Trieste in 2012 (Nuclear Energy in Italy after the Second World War: Research, Culture, Politics – http://www.elettra.trieste.it/Ippolito/). This conference proposes to examine the ways in which international politics and economics, technological and scientific exchanges, as well as social and cultural movements, influenced Italian nuclear energy policies, both civilian and military. Furthermore, it seeks to understand how the Italian case compares to other national histories, in Western and Eastern Europe, the U.S., Latin America, Asia and Africa.
