Dr. Jay Winter (Yale)
August 19 1-6 pm, University of Sydney
This workshop brought together major practitioners in the new international history, and the history of memory, in order to discuss the ways in which sites of international have been important to national histories, and the historical significance of institutional and ideological internationalisms that have shaped the modern history of global governance since the late nineteenth century. Its aim is to deepen and enhance our own ‘memory’ and understanding of the cultural, social and political contexts of global governance.
