Mark Bradley lectures on Americans and Human Rights

The World Reimagined: Americans and Human Rights

Part of the 'Rethinking the Cold War' lecture series with the Cultures of the Cold War network at the University of Sheffield. 

How did the idea of 'human rights' develop in the twentieth century?


In this lecture, Mark Bradley explored how changes in US culture and thought in the 1970s reflected a changing global idea of 'universial human rights' and transformed the American idea of what it means to be free.
