The Centre for the Study of Internationalism
We are a research centre at Birkbeck, University of London, that brings together scholars across the world and at all stages in their careers with interests in the social, cultural, political, economic, intellectual and legal fabric of our world of nation-states and international institutions.
About the centre
Centre members include, among others, historians, geographers, area studies experts, political scientists, scholars of international relations, legal scholars, policy analysts, economists, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary theorists.
The Centre provides a shared home for all research enquiries into the nature, expressions, origins and future of internationalism.
The Centre holds regular events such as seminars, book launches, workshops and other events. We also host discussions, conference and book reviews on our Blog.
The Centre is pleased to host a new book series, published by Bloomsbury and edited by Jessica Reinisch and David Brydan. Histories of Internationalism showcases cutting-edge research into the many guises of internationalism. Its titles draw on methods and insights from political, social, cultural, economic and intellectual history.
