A New Cold War?
2023 Baker Peace Conference

Are we in a new Cold War? This is the theme of the Contemporary History Institute’s annual Baker Peace Conference taking place Feb. 23-24 in Ohio University’s Walter Rotunda.
The keynote address will be delivered Thursday evening by Julia Ioffe, a Russia specialist who has contributed articles to The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, Forbes, The Washington Post, and other prominent publications. Ms. Ioffe is currently the Washington correspondent for the recently founded website, Puck.
On Friday, the conference will feature three panels, each with three speakers. The first panel will take place in the morning from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and focus on Russia and Europe. The second will take place in the early afternoon from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and address China and Asia. The third panel will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and adopt a broader view, considering the question of how peace may be achieved and preserved in tomorrow’s world.
We hope to see you there. Coffee and other refreshments will be available to attendees throughout the day on Friday.
