About the Conference During and after the First World War, blueprints for peace and a non-violent reordering of society permeated all countries in Europe.

Cold-War Home Fronts: Comparative Approaches”, University of Sheffield, 26-27 January 2018 January 26 - January 27 Conference Programme – Call for Papers Registration Link For four decades after the end of the Second World War, competition between the socialist and capitalist blocs shaped international relations on a global scale.

June 29, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm
38 Mappin Street
