Memories of Central European History, 1997–2005

  • Kees Gispen (a1)
Extract

I became involved with what was then called the Conference Group for Central European History in early 1997, when I accepted Roger Chickering's invitation to succeed him as Executive Secretary and Treasurer. This put me in charge of preparing and distributing the biannual (now defunct) Newsletter and of carrying out a variety of other duties, including keeping track of the money and organizing the annual executive meeting and the Bierabend—a cash bar and convivial get-together for historians of Central Europe—at the annual conference of the American Historical Association. The Newsletter kept members of the Conference Group informed about matters relevant to Central European history, such as upcoming events, panels on German and Austrian history at the American Historical Association meeting, scholarships, fellowships, as well as events at the German Historical Institute in Washington, DC, including the annual Transatlantic Doctoral Seminar. At one point, it was mailed separately to members and then, sometime later, published in Central European History.

1 Personal correspondence, Kenneth Barkin to Kees Gispen, March 2, 2004 (in possession of the author). [Margaret Lavinia Anderson wrote the following to the current editor of CEH in an email dated July 29, 2017: “Ken Barkin said that he could never have managed CEH without Ursula Marcum. Ursula was about 10 years older than he, a German woman married to an American, who after her children grew up, went back to university to get a PhD. Ken was her Doktorvater. She was perfect for CEH, not least because of her German. She was also good-natured, a good writer, and meticulous. Gold!”—Ed.]
