2017 Nuclear History Boot Camp

Aimed at building a new generation of experts on the international history of nuclear weapons, the seventh-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–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:
1) Fully immerse participants in the world of nuclear history research,
2) Explore the international history behind today’s nuclear challenges,
3) Foster discussions of the presentations that each participant will offer based on their current research.

NPIHP’s summer 2017 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 15th-June 25th
Participants will receive full tuition and round-trip airfare to Rome as well as accommodations and meals during the boot camp.

Specifically targeted at building a new generation of experts on the international history of nuclear weapons, the summer 2017 Nuclear History Boot Camp is open to:
1) Students enrolled in or who have been accepted to a Ph.D. program in international relations, history, political science and related fields,
2) Especially students who are working towards or considering a thesis on nuclear matters.
3) Applicants who have completed their M.A. degree and are considering a Ph.D. in any of the above fields will also be considered.

Call for Proposal – East-West Cultural Relations: Interplay of Arts and Cultural Diplomacy, 1945-2017

By Flavia Gasbarri | settembre 14, 2016

Call for Proposals

East-West Cultural Relations: Interplay of Arts and Cultural Diplomacy, 1945-2017

February 24-25, 2017, University of Jyväskylä, Finland

Keynote lectures by Boris Gasparov (Columbia University) and Giles Scott-Smith (Leiden University)

Scholars and practitioners interested in cultural diplomacy are invited to submit proposals for papers and for panels that address East-West cultural relations—either from historical or contemporary points of view. In this conference, ‘East’ and ‘West’ are broadly understood as the Eastern and Western parts of Europe, Russia and the Soviet Union.

East-West Cultural Relations seeks to strengthen the research of cultural exchanges across national borders. It explores and raises awareness of the state of cultural relations and diplomacy between Eastern and Western Europe. The conference aims to reflect on the East-West cultural connections from the Second World War to today. Its main focus is on artistic movements and exchanges between (and possibly within) the East and West.

Important background information is revealed through the current situation in which cultural exchanges are becoming more difficult—especially under strained relations between Russia and the EU. Furthermore, facilitating the transnational mobility of artworks and artists at a time of diminishing public support is increasingly challenging, underlining the need to reflect on the development of cultural interactions in Europe. The rise of nationalist discourse throughout Europe also challenges the shared cultural heritage and history of Eastern and Western Europe, which calls the benefits of cultural exchange into question.

The primary goal of this two-day conference is to serve scholarly needs, but also to encourage collaboration and foster dialogues between scholars and cultural diplomacy practitioners. We invite proposals for papers, panels, seminars and workshops that address themes including but not limited to:

• How have artistic relations evolved in Europe since the beginning of the Cold War?

• How has cultural diplomacy developed in an East-West setting since the beginning of the Cold War? What are the aims of cultural diplomatic actions?

• What is the state of cultural relations between the East and West today? What are the current challenges and needs? Are there any historical precedents for the current situation?

• What kinds of relationships or dialogues have existed between cultural diplomacy and artistic interactions and art practices in the East and West?

• How can scholarship on cultural exchanges help practitioners—e.g. diplomats, administrators and art professional?

Over the course of this two-day conference, scholars will share their research findings, offer examples of cutting-edge approaches and engage in dynamic discussions that will help nurture intercultural dialogue and bridge scholarly and practical question.

La scomparsa del Prof. Ennio Di Nolfo

By Flavia Gasbarri | settembre 8, 2016

Ieri in tarda serata è venuto a mancare Ennio Di Nolfo, Presidente e fondatore del Centro Interuniversitario Machiavelli. Per noi che con lui abbiamo studiato e lavorato è stato un esempio di passione per la ricerca, di continua sfida a rinnovarsi e a cambiare, di capacità di coniugare il rigore del metodo con l’immaginazione e la fantasia. E’ stato soprattutto, fino all’ultimo momento, un esempio impareggiabile di coraggio e di dignità. Ci stringiamo affettuosamente alla Signora Alessandra e alle figlie Isabella e Federica nel ricordo forte e struggente del maestro.

Gli Allievi

La camera ardente sarà allestita sabato 10 settembre dalle ore 10:00 alle ore 18:00 presso la Fondazione di Studi Storici Filippo Turati in via Buonarroti 12, a Firenze

Billington Fellowship – Application

By Flavia Gasbarri | aprile 6, 2016

Billington Fellowship
Type: Fellowship

Mar 29, 2016 to May 20, 2016

Deadline: May 20, 2016

The Kennan Institute seeks applicants from scholars who have received their Ph.D. within the past 10 years for the newly established Billington Fellowship to conduct research on Russian history and culture. The Billington Fellowship was established in 2016 in tribute to the co-founder of the Kennan Institute, Director Emeritus of the Wilson Center, and Librarian Emeritus of Congress, James H. Billington. Dr. Billington has made enduring contributions to the field of Russian Studies, and in our nation’s ability to understand and maintain bridges of dialogue with the Russian people. He is not only the author of The Icon and the Axe (1966), Fire in the Minds of Men (1980), and Russia in Search of Itself (2004), among other seminal works; he is the visionary behind the Open World Leadership Center, which has facilitated the travel of over 24,000 individuals from Eurasia to the United States to meet with members of Congress and visit across the United States.

The Billington Fellow will be based at the Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute in Washington, D.C. for a nine-month term (one academic year). Fellows will receive access to the Library of Congress, National Archives, and policy research centers in Washington, D.C., as well as the opportunity to meet with key experts and officials at the State Department, USAID, Department of Defense, and Congress. While conducting research, the Billington Fellow will be expected to actively participate in discussions with the policy and academic communities. These discussions can be in the form of speaking engagements at the Wilson Center and potentially outside of Washington D.C., as well as attending meetings, conferences, and other activities organized by the Kennan Institute and the Wilson Center. Upon completion of the fellowship, the Billington Fellow will join our growing list of alumni, for whom the Kennan Institute will continue to offer opportunities for collaboration and engagement.

Applicants for the Billington Fellowship must hold a Ph.D. awarded within the past 10 years. Preference will be given to proposed research in the fields of Russian history and culture. There is no citizenship restriction on this grant.

The Billington Fellowship offers a monthly stipend of $3,500, research facilities, a research intern, and computer access. Fellows are required to be in residence at the Kennan Institute, Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. for the duration of the grant. Awardees are expected to begin their appointments within six months of accepting the fellowship.

The deadline for this competition is May 20, 2016. To apply, please complete the attached application form according to the instructions and submit by email to: kennan@wilsoncenter.org

Please note that the application form calls for two letters of recommendation for the proposed research. Instructions for obtaining and sending reference letters are on the application form.

The Billington Fellowship is made possible through generous private support to the Billington Initiative at the Kennan Institute.
