Call for applications on Cold War archival research


Doctoral students writing dissertations that involve Cold War archival research may apply to participate in a “Summer Institute on Conducting Archival Research” at the George Washington University. The four-day program is designed to train graduate students to become more proficient in archival research.


The program is sponsored by the Cold War International History Project (CWIHP), “a clearinghouse and research institute for international Cold War history based at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.,” according to the official open invitation for applicants. “CWIHP collects, translates, and publishes declassified documents from former Communist world and other archives. It supports the full and prompt release of historical materials by governments on all sides of the Cold War, and seeks to accelerate the process of integrating new sources, materials and perspectives from the former ‘Communist bloc’ and other countries into Cold War historiography.”


The CWIHP is not affiliated with the Institute of World Politics.
