Book Series: Histories of Internationalism

Bloomsbury’s new book series, Histories of Internationalism, is hosted by the Centre and edited by Jessica Reinisch and David Brydan.

This series features cutting-edge research on the history of international cooperation and internationalising ambitions in the modern world. Providing an intellectual home for research into the many guises of internationalism, its titles draw on methods and insights from political, social, cultural, economic and intellectual history.

The book series showcases a rapidly expanding scholarship which has begun to transform our understanding of internationalism. Cutting across established academic fields such as European, World, International and Global History, Histories of Internationalism critically examines historical perceptions of geography, regions, centres, peripheries, borderlands and connections across space in the history of internationalism. It includes both monographs and edited volumes that shed new light on local and global contexts for international projects; the impact of class, race and gender on international aspirations; the roles played by a variety of international organisations and institutions; and the hopes, fears, tensions and conflicts underlying them.

Forthcoming titles

Europe’s Internationalists

This edited collection examines a variety of international movements, organisations and projects developed in Europe or by Europeans over the course of the 20th century. Reacting against the old Eurocentricism, many areas of scholarship have refocused efforts to other parts of the globe. This volume attempts to bring back an understanding of the roles played by ideas, people and organisations originating or located in Europe, including some of their consequential global impact. The chapters cover aspects of internationalism such as the importance of language, communication and infrastructures of internationalism; ways of grappling with the history of internationalism as a lived experience; and the roles of European actors in the formulation of different and often competing models of internationalism. It demonstrates that the success and failure of international programmes were dependent on participants’ ability to communicate across linguistic but also political, cultural and economic borders.
