Masuda Hajimu

Purity and Order:
Toward Social-Cultural Understandings of the Cold War, 1950-1953


Masuda Hajimu

Masuda Hajimu argues that it was more than an international confrontation between West and East blocs. It was also a social mechanism of purity and ordering at home, in the chaotic post-WWII world. The suppression of counterrevolutionaries in China, the White Terror in Taiwan, the Red Purge in Japan, McCarthyism in the United States--these were not merely end results of the Cold War, but forces that brought the Cold War into being, as ordinary people throughout the world strove to silence disagreements and restore social order under the mantle of an imagined global confrontationch soldiers who refuse to continue a suicidal assault.

Masuda Hajimu (family name Masuda) received his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 2012 and currently is assistant professor of history at the National University of Singapore, where he specializes in the history of Japan, student movements in Asia, decolonization, and the Cold War. He is the author of Cold War Crucible: The Korean Conflict and the Postwar World (Harvard University Press, 2015) and has published articles in Diplomatic History, Journal of Contemporary History, Journal of Cold War Studies, and Journal of American-East Asian Relations.

Call For Papers for 2016 GWU/UCSB/LSE Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War

Deadline: January 24, 2016

The George Washington University Cold War Group (GWCW), the Center for Cold War Studies (CCWS) of the University of California at Santa Barbara, and LSE IDEAS Cold War Studies Programme of the London School of Economics and Political Science (CWSP) are pleased to announce their 2016 International Graduate Conference on the Cold War, to take place at the Elliott School of International Affairs of The George Washington University from Thursday 21 April – Saturday 23 April 2016.

The conference is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to present papers and receive critical feedback from peers and experts in the field. We encourage submissions by graduate students working on any aspect of the Cold War, broadly defined. Of particular interest are papers that employ newly available primary sources or non-traditional methodologies. To be considered, each prospective participant should submit a two-page proposal and a brief academic CV (in Word or pdf format) to Gregg Brazinsky (brazinsk@email.gwu.edu) by 24 January 2016. Notification of acceptance will occur by 16 February. Successful applicants will be expected to e-mail their papers (no longer than 25 pages) by 17 March. The author of the strongest paper will be awarded the Saki Ruth Dockrill Memorial Prize of £100 to be spent on books in any form. The winner will also have an opportunity to publish his or her article in the journal Cold War History. For further information, please contact Gregg Brazinsky at the aforementioned e-mail address.

The conference sessions will be chaired by prominent faculty members from LSE, GWU, UCSB, and elsewhere. The organizers will cover accommodation costs of admitted student participants for the duration of the conference, but students will need to cover the costs of their travel to Washington, DC.

In 2003, UCSB and GW first joined their separate spring conferences, and two years later LSE became a co-sponsor. The three cold war centers now hold a jointly sponsored conference each year, alternating among the three campuses. For more information on our three programs, please visit the respective websites:
