The European Summer School on Cold War History convenes each year in early September. Accepting no more than eighteen students each year, with ten or more faculty attending, the summer school aims to have a very high faculty to student ratio. This allows the school to have a more intimate, yet informal atmosphere than traditional conferences. Faculty include Arne Westad, Piers Ludlow, Arne Hofmann, Svetozar Rajak (London School of Economics), Federico Romero (EUI), Oliver Rathkolb (University of Vienna) Leopoldo Nuti (Università Roma 3), Silvio Pons (Università di Roma Tor Vergata), Antonio Varsori, Valentine Lomellini, David Burigana (Università di Padova) and Sara Lorenzini (Università di Trento) The venue rotates each year between the partner institutions in Italy, Austria and Britain.
Doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars (within three years of viva) are encouraged to apply. Exceptional research masters students may be considered. The call for papers is issued in January. For more information contact the organisers.
