Second Annual
GWU-UCSB Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War

April 30-May 2, 2004
George Washington University

The George Washington University Cold War Group (GWCW) and the UC Santa Barbara Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS) announce their second annual graduate student conference on the Cold War, to be held at the George Washington University, April 30-May 2, 2004. Prior to 2003, the programs held separate spring conferences; they now hold a jointly sponsored conference held at each campus in alternating years. The conference is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to present papers and receive critical feedback from peers and experts in the field. Each panel has one or more established scholars serving as discussants. There will also be tips for research provided in sessions led by leading scholars in the field.

We encourage submissions by graduate students working on any aspect of the Cold War. Proposals, including a brief CV and one-page abstract, should be emailed to conference coordinator Yvette Chin at by January 15, 2004. The conference chair is Professor James M. Goldgeier of GWU.

We also seek faculty members to serve as chairs and discussants. Those
interested in serving in this capacity should contact Yvette Chin.
