CWIHP is pleased to announce that it has received, in partnership with Professor Robert Edelman and the University of California, San Diego, as well as Professor Christopher Young of the University of Cambridge, a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to organize and host a series of workshops exploring the role of sports during the Cold War. Over a three-year period, “The Global History of Sport in the Cold War” will examine the impact that amateur and professional sports competitions had on the larger Cold War. A series of three workshops will be held in New York, Moscow and Cambridge, with resulting papers published in two print volumes. All archival documents that come from the project will be made available for free on the History and Public Policy Program’s Digital Archive.
