Tri-University History Conference, Oct. 16

Posted on Thursday, October 7th, 2010

This year's Tri-U History Conference takes place in the Arts Lecture Building at the University of Waterloo. Our focus this year, "Cold War Encounters," coincides with the recent creation of the Cold War History Field at the Ph.D. level and spotlights an exciting diversity of a global scholarship.

This year's keynote speaker: Dr. Fredrik Logevall, John S. Knight, Professor of International Studies at Cornell University and author of several books, including the highly acclaimed Choosing War: The Lost Chance for Peace and the Escalation of War in Vietnam. Currently Dr. Logevall is researching a biography of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.
