The 2018-2019 Hugh Hawkins Lecture: "Against the World: Deglobalization in Interwar Europe"

February 7, 2019 - 4:30 pm
Beneski Earth Sciences Building, 107 (Paino Lecture Hall)

Tara Zahra, the Homer J. Livingston Professor of History at the University of Chicago, speaks on the transnational history of modern Europe. In 1914, the First World War ushered in a quarter century of anti-global retrenchment in Europe. Why did so many Europeans reject globalization after the First World War? What relationship did these anti-global movements have to the rise of radical political movements on the far right and left? And to what extent do the anti-global politics of interwar Europe resemble those of our own time? This lecture is free and open to the public.
