Internationalism In The Age Of Nationalism

Monday 25th November / presented by Rewi Lyall

Glenda Sluga’s weighty tome ‘Internationalism in the Age of Nationalism’ traces the arc of internationalism through its rise before World War I,

its apogee at the end of World War II, its reprise in the global seventies and the post-Cold War nineties, and its decline after 9/11.

In this retelling of the history of the twentieth century, conceptions of sovereignty, community, and identity were the objects of trade and reinvention

among diverse intellectual and social communities, and internationalism was imagined as the means of national independence and national rights, as well as the antidote to nationalism.

Sluga highlights the role of internationalism in the evolution of the new way of thinking about the twentieth century through political, economic, social and cultural modern views.

Rewi Lyall spoke with University of Sydney Professor of International History and author of Internationalism in the Age of Nationalism Glenda Sluga earlier this morning.
