The Baltic Sea Region and the Cold War, 27 - 28 November 2010, Tartu,

The Baltic Sea Region and the Cold War
International Workshop
27 – 28 November 2010
Tartu, Estonia
Call for Papers

The historiography of the Cold War circles usually around the great
players and the major events and developments. The Baltic Sea region
seemed to play only a peripheral role in this context. Nevertheless,
the last 20 years saw a blossoming of national approaches to the
history of this region. In the light of new research in recently
opened archives, it turns out that the role of the region before and
during the Cold War was more diverse and probably more important than
previously expected. The impact of the Cold War even on so-called
neutral countries was obviously larger than thought. The workshop
aims at bringing together scholars and PhD-students working on the
history of the region during the Cold War and to overcome the
isolation of national historiography. Fields to be covered might be:

•	International Relations in the Baltic Sea Region 
•	Social and Economic History of the Cold War 
•	Cold War Culture
•	Military and Security
•	Impact of the Cold War on Regional Identity
•	Legacy of the Cold War in the Region

A preliminary version of the paper should be distributed to all
participants in advance.   During the workshop the major themes of
the paper should be presented in 20 minutes.  Time will be left for
extensive discussion.  It is the intent of the organizers of the
workshop to publish the final versions of the papers afterwards. The
workshop will be held at the University of Tartu, Estonia. Board and
accommodation and part of the travel expenses will be covered for all
paper presenters. We encourage especially PhD-students to propose

The workshop is organized by the Institute of History and Archeology
of the University of Tartu, Estonia, and supported by the Nordic and
North/Central European Network of Cold War Researchers, the target
financed project “Estonia in the Era of the Cold War” and the project
“Baltic Regionalism: Constructing Political Space(s) in Northern
Europe, 1800–2000”.

Please send your proposal for a paper (250-300 words) and a short CV
no later than 1 May 2010, by e-mail, to the organizer Dr Olaf
Mertelsmann (omertelsmann at yahoo.co.uk).
