De-Centering Cold War History: Street-Level Experiences and Global Change

De-Centering Cold War History: Street-Level Experiences and Global Change Cold War histories are often told as stories of national leaders, state policies and the global confrontation that pitted a Communist Eastern Block against a Capitalist West. We acknowledge the important consequences of this global competition, of the arms race, and of international diplomacy and détente, but we seek to bring together scholars who contribute new analytical approaches to reveal the complexities in the historical trajectory of the Cold War. To this end, we plan to engage in a collaborative effort to present and publish a street-level history of the global Cold War era. As three collaborators from different fields, we issue this CFP first for a Conference Presentation at the University of Arizona (November 4-November 7, 2010). Second, we will publish selected conference presentations in a Special Edition Journal. We invite contributions that challenge Cold War master narratives with a focus on s

This conference aims to explore the understanding and application of the notion of rights to health within different historical and geographical settings.  Themes to be addressed include (but are not restricted to): - Changing conceptions of health rights across time and space - The health rights o
