Sport and the Cold War

Professor Christopher Young and his colleague from the University of California, San Diego, Professor Robert Edelman, finalised the overall funding package for their Cold War and Sports project in September with the award of $64K from the US National Endowment of the Humanities. This grant matches the amount already gathered in from the Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia at New York University, the German Historical Institute in Moscow, and Pembroke College, Cambridge. Under the umbrella of the Cold War History Project at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in Washington DC, there will be three international conferences involving over eighty scholars at each of these institutions (2015-16), with follow-up volumes to be published by the presses of the University of California and Stanford. The success rate for the programme over the last five years has been 12 percent, and this is UCSD's first ever success in the competition. Further details can be found here
