  • Call for Papers: "Latin America and Europe during the Cold War"
    We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a symposium on "Latin America and Europe during the Cold War" due to take place next year at AHILA's conference in Berlin, 9-13 September 2014. This symposium will examine the relations between Latin America, the Soviet bloc and Western Europe during the Cold War. This symposium will place special emphasis on papers that draw on newly available documents and research that shed light on the history of ideas, the people who travelled between these regions, the type of communication they established and the mutual influences that developed between Europe and Latin America. Those interested in taking part in this symposium should send a 1 page proposal and a brief academic CV to the coordinators of the symposium: Dr Tanya Harmer (t.harmer@lse.ac.uk) and Dr Fernando Purcell (fpurcell@uc.cl) by 1 December 2013.
