Applications are now being     accepted for the 2018 Nuclear History Boot Camp.

Aimed at building a new     generation of experts on the international history of nuclear weapons, the     eighth-annual Nuclear     History Boot Camp is an initiative of the Nuclear Proliferation International     History Project (NPIHP). The continued proliferation of nuclear weapons is     one of the most pressing security issues of our time--NPIHP’s Nuclear     History Boot Camp is an intensive, ten-day immersion in the history of     nuclear matters ranging from the evolution of nuclear technology to the origins     and development of deterrence theory and nuclear strategy through the     historical roots of today’s global nuclear landscape.

NPIHP’s summer 2018     Nuclear History Boot Camp will be hosted by the University of Roma Tre and     the Machiavelli Center for Cold War Studies (CIMA) at a former ACE HIGH     NATO communications relay site in the village of Allumiere near Rome, Italy     for ten days, June 15th-June 25th.

The deadline for     applications is Wednesday, January 10, 2018.

·A brief abstract (maximum 200 words) of your current academic     research.
