LSE and the Genesis of Global Governance

Hosted by the Department of International History

Old Theatre, Old Building

Speaker

Professor Patricia Clavin

Chair

Professor Matthew Jones

Starring the League of Nations, and featuring the students, staff, and archives of the London School of Economics and Political Science, the lecture recovers the entangled history of LSE with the practices of global governance.

This international history lecture reveals a wide-ranging preoccupation with the material conditions of peace, alongside the more familiar concern of disarmament.

Patricia Clavin is Professor of International History, and Zeitlyn Fellow and Tutor in History at Jesus College Oxford. She is an editor of the Oxford History Monographs series, and serves on the editorial board of Past and Present. In 2008-09, she held the British Academy ‘Thank-Offering-to-Britain’ Senior Research Fellowship, and in 2015 was awarded a Major Research Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and the Royal Historical Society, and a Foreign Member of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. 

In 2015, Patricia was awarded the British Academy Medal, which recognises a ‘landmark achievement that has transformed understanding’ for her book Securing the World Economy: The Reinvention of the League of Nations, 1920-1946.

Matthew Jones is Professor of International History and Head of the Department of International History at LSE.

The LSE's Department of International History (@lsehistory) teaches and conducts research on the international history of Britain, Europe and the world from the early modern era up to the present day.
