Tuesday, April 19, 2022, 4:15pm to 5:30pm


Zoom (registration required)

Speaker:  Patrick O. Cohrs, Professor of International History, University of Florence

Chair: Charles Maier, Leverett Saltonstall Research Professor of History, Harvard University

In his new book, The New Atlantic Order (2022), Patrick O. Cohrs offers an in-depth analysis of the transformation of the global order in the period between the era of global imperialism and the aftermath of the First World War. Cohrs reinterprets the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 as the first attempt to establish a transatlantic peace. Cohrs argues that this effort proved formative for more advanced conceptions of interdependent peace, collective security, self-determination, and a rule-based international order.
