Carolina Seminar • Problems of Perestroika: The KGB and Gorbachev’s Reforms

January 9, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Simon Miles is an assistant professor in the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University. He is a diplomatic historian who uses international archival research, particularly in the former Eastern bloc, to shed new light on the history of the Cold War. His current book project explores the root causes of cooperation between two adversarial states, the United States and the Soviet Union, in order to situate the peaceful conclusion of the Cold War in a broader, international context.

The Carolina Seminar: Russia and Its Empires, East and West is co-sponsored by the Carolina Seminar Program, the UNC Department of History and the Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies. Please note that the participants will give an overview of their projects, but will not read a formal paper. Instead, papers or book chapters will be circulated ahead of time to those who are interested in attending and participating in the discussion. Please contact Dr. Eren Tasar for more information (
