Ryan Irwin, “Denizens of the Center: Law as American Grand Strategy” (Yale U., March 31, 2016)

Readers of the Global History Forum may remember our interview with SUNY-Albany historian Ryan Irwin on his book Gordian Knot and his work more broadly in international history. If you liked that piece and are located in the Northeast, then mark your calendar. This March 31, Irwin will be giving a lecture at Yale University on his new project. “The talk,” explains a recent announcement,

will trace the evolution of liberal internationalism during the mid-twentieth century. Outlining a collective biography of Dean Acheson, Felix Frankfurter, Harold Laski, and Walter Lippmann, the narrative reveals the mechanisms by which these individuals redefined the meaning of sovereignty, rights, and world order.

For those interested, the talk will take place in Room 211 of the Hall of Graduate Studies (320 York Street) at Yale on Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 4:30 PM.
