By Flavia Gasbarri | novembre 28, 2014

Transatlantic Studies Association
14th Annual Conference
Roosevelt Study Center
Middelburg, The Netherlands
6 – 8 July 2015
Keynote Lectures:
Jessica Gienow-Hecht (Free University, Berlin)

The Transatlantic Paradigm Reconsidered

Call for Papers

Following on from its successful conference at the University of Ghent, the Transatlantic Studies Association is moving on to the Netherlands for its 14th annual conference in July 2015.
Established in 2002, the TSA is a broad network of scholars who use the ‘transatlantic’ as a frame of reference for their work in political, economic, cultural, historical, environmental, literary, and IR/security studies. All transatlantic-themed paper and panel proposals from these disciplines are welcome. The Middelburg conference also encourages proposals / panels that:

a) investigate the relevance and significance of the ‘transatlantic’ for a certain discipline or field;
b) that explore it through frames of reference such as ideology, empire, race, religion, migration, political mobilisation, or social movements;
c) that incorporate perspectives that involve north-south and south-south transatlantic connections, as well as north-north;
d) that link the ‘transatlantic’ to other key perspectives such as the transnational or the cosmopolitan.

Both panel proposals and individual papers are welcome. Panel proposals are encouraged to include a discussant. New members and junior scholars are especially welcome.
Please send individual paper proposals (a 300 word abstract + brief CV) and complete panel proposals (300 word overview + 300 word abstracts for the papers + brief CVs) to the conference email: 2015TSA14@gmail.com

Deadline for panel and paper proposals: 1 December 2014

The Conference Location
Middelburg is located in the south-west Netherlands, and has a rich history as an important trading centre for the Dutch East India Company in the 17th and 18th centuries. For a while it was second only to Amsterdam in terms of commercial importance. Many from this region also migrated to North America, among them the Roosevelt family in 1649. The Roosevelt Study Center was established in Middelburg in 1986 to commemorate these ties, and to support and promote the study of American history and politics in the Netherlands and across Europe. Situated in the abbey in the centre of the town, it is the ideal location for a conference exploring the significance of the ‘transatlantic’.

Accommodation
Due to limited accommodation options in the town of Middelburg, it is highly recommended that participants organize their accommodation as early as possible. Every effort will therefore be made to accept proposals as soon as possible after the 1 December deadline.
The Roosevelt Study Center can be contacted at rsc@zeeland.nl for information on accommodation options.

TSA Chair and local conference organiser:
Giles Scott-Smith: g.scott-smith@zeeland.nl

Victor Gavin, Mark Meirowitz, Alexandre Moreli, Sirpa Salenius, Roberta ter Haar, Pia Wiegmink, David Woolner

Apply for the 2015 Nuclear History Boot Camp

By Flavia Gasbarri | ottobre 27, 2014

Aimed at building a new generation of experts on the international history of nuclear weapons, the fifth-annual Nuclear History Boot Camp is an initiative of the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project (NPIHP). The continued proliferation of nuclear weapons is one of the most pressing security issues of our time, yet the empirically-based study of international nuclear history remains in its infancy! NPIHP’s Nuclear History Boot Camp is an intensive, ten-day immersion in the history of nuclear matters ranging from the evolution of nuclear technology to the origins and development of deterrence theory and nuclear strategy through the historical roots of today’s global nuclear landscape.

Thematic seminars led by world-class historians and leading experts will:

fully immerse participants in the world of nuclear history research,
explore the international history behind today’s nuclear challenges,
foster discussions of the presentations that each participant will offer based on his/her current research.

Details
NPIHP’s summer 2015 Nuclear History Boot Camp will be hosted by the University of Roma Tre and the Machiavelli Center for Cold War Studies (CIMA) at a former ACE HIGH NATO communications relay site in the village of Allumiere near Rome, Italy for ten days, June 12 – 22, 2015.
Participants will receive full tuition and round-trip airfare to Rome as well as accommodations and meals during the boot camp.

Eligibility
Specifically targeted at building a new generation of experts on the international history of nuclear weapons, the summer 2015 Nuclear History Boot Camp is open to:
• Students enrolled in or who have been accepted to a Ph.D. program in international relations, history, political science and related fields,
• especially students who are working towards or considering a thesis on nuclear matters.
• Applicants who have completed their M.A. degree and are considering a Ph.D. in any of the above fields will also be considered.

Application Instructions
Applications are due no later than Sunday, 30 November 2014
Required application materials include:
A brief resume or CV (maximum 2 pages).
A letter of recommendation from a professor, supervisor or senior professional colleague who knows you well.
A brief abstract (maximum 200 words) of your current academic research.
A statement of purpose (approximately 1 page or 400-600 words in length) describing how participating in the Nuclear History Boot Camp would contribute to the achievement of your personal, professional or academic goals.
A completed application cover sheet.
All application materials must be in English. Please submit each required document as a separate PDF file.

CALL FOR PAPERS – The Great Transformation? Reassessing the Causes and Consequences of the End of the Cold War

By Flavia Gasbarri | ottobre 26, 2014

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Great Transformation?
Reassessing the Causes and Consequences of the End of the Cold War

The Department of International History of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, with the support from the Fondation Pierre du Bois pour l’Histoire du Temps Présent, will host an international conference on the end of the Cold War in Geneva on September 24-26, 2015.

The conference seeks to bring together different perspectives on the end of the Cold War. The main aim of the conference is to move beyond identifying individual protagonists, while focusing on processes and interactions. At the moment, the state of research on the causes and consequences of the end of the Cold War – necessarily still at its initial phase – seems to have focused on isolated themes, largely independent and detached from each other. The conference seeks to act as a forum for bringing many of these strands together. We expect the main focus of the conference to be on the events, transformations and processes that took place in the 1980s. However, we also welcome proposals that interpret the end of the Cold War in a broader temporal context. Moreover, the conference will seek to open a window on the post-Cold War era, by searching for the roots of some of the issues that have dominated the international scene since the 1990s.
While not excluding proposals on any aspect related to the end of the Cold War, we particularly welcome proposals on the following broad themes and issues:

- United States foreign policy (e.g. towards the USSR, the Third World, Europe, arms control, human rights);
- Soviet foreign policy (e.g. towards the USA, the Third World, Europe, arms control, links with domestic challenges);
- The developments in and between Western and Eastern Europe;
- The impact of regional conflicts (e.g. Southwest Asia, Latin America, Africa);
- The role of high-level diplomacy and personalities;
- The influence of technology and information exchanges;
- The relationship between the Cold War and international, non-state and transnational actors and movements (e.g. terrorism, peace movements).

The deadline for submission of proposals (one-page abstract and one-page biography) is October 31st, 2014.
Proposals should be emailed to CW-Conference2015@graduateinstitute.ch
Selected participants will be notified by February 1st, 2015
Final papers should be submitted no later than August 31st, 2015

Workers of all lands unite? Working-class nationalism and internationalism until 1945 CALL FOR PAPERS

By Flavia Gasbarri | ottobre 8, 2014

Workers of all lands unite?
Working-class nationalism and internationalism until 1945

CALL FOR PAPERS
7th March 2015, University of Nottingham

September 2014 marked the 150th anniversary of the founding of the International Workingmen’s Association, or First International. Between 1864 and today, the cause, practice, and history of working-class internationalism has undergone many changes, and has appeared in a dizzying variety of forms all over the globe. Yet working-class internationalism has always been defined in terms of what at first appears to be its opposite, working-class nationalism. While some historians have regarded these concepts, and the ways in which they were practically embodied, as opposites and as mutually conflicting, others have found a more complex relationship between the two, and have instead considered class contrasts, gender relations, and racial conflicts. Similarly, workers and their organizations have often struggled to reconcile internationalism as a political commitment with notions of national belonging. This polar duality had been further complicated by perceptions of racial, ethnic, and gender identities.
This conference aims to explore the relationships between working-class nationalism and internationalism prior to 1945. We invite papers on any aspect of this relationship or of these concepts from postgraduates, early career scholars, and those outside of full-time academia that have an interest in Labour/Trade Union History, Economic History, Politics, Political Theory, Race and Ethnicity Studies, and/or Gender Studies. We look forward to papers that discuss European and American contexts, but we also warmly encourage papers that predate the creation of the First International, or go beyond European and American topics discussing Asian, African, and Oceanic situations.
Topics can include but do not need to be limited to:

- Cross-border trade union and socialist organizations;
- Local experiences of internationalist organizations;
- Workers’ attitudes to the First and/or Second World Wars;
- Colonialism and racism;
- Internationalist, nationalist and ethnic tensions within organizations;
- Independence struggles and socialism;
- International solidarity;
- Immigration policies in workers’ organizations, racial and ethnic prejudices amongst workers.

Keynote speaker: TBA.
Postgraduates, early career historians and those outside of full-time academia are invited to submit proposals for papers (of about 20-30 minute’s length) by the 7th January 2015. Please e-mail abstracts of no more than 300 words to workersuniteconf2015@gmail.com. Abstracts should include your name, institution and/or organization, email address, and the title of your proposed paper.
For more information on the conference follow us on Twitter (@wuniteconf2015) or consult our website: http://workersuniteconference2015.wordpress.com.
The conference is hosted by the Department of History and the Department of American and Canadian Studies, University of Nottingham, and supported by the Economic History Society

Please send an abstract and a CV to nsri@MIT.edu by December 1, 2014. Decisions will be announced in January 2015. For more information about the project, please visit our web site at www.mit.edu/ssp/nsri.

About NSRI: The Nuclear Studies Research Initiative (NSRI) was established to support and expand what we believe is a renaissance in nuclear studies by creating a platform for intellectual exchange, cross-fertilization, and mentorship. The initiative actively promotes work that transcends both national and disciplinary boundaries and seeks to contribute to policy. Created in 2013 by the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law and the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project, the NSRI is now hosted by MIT’s Security Studies Program and generously supported by both the Carnegie Corporation Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation. The NSRI is directed by Francis J. Gavin, Stanton Chair in Nuclear Security Policy studies and Professor of Political Science at MIT.
