Jan Eckel (Tübingen)
New Perspectives on the History of International Politics in the Twentieth Century

This lecture suggests a new chronology of international politics in the twentieth century. It will argue that the century was marked by a series of transformative moments, not just the second ‘thirty years war’ followed by the Cold War. In order to understand the crucial driving forces behind international relations, historians need to focus on the interplay between superpower antagonism, anti-imperial aspirations, post-colonial attempts to create a new world order, the deep splits within the Communist world, and the multiple forms of global governance.

Jan Eckel is Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at the University of Tübingen. He is the author of the prize-winning book Die Ambivalenz des Guten: Menschenrechte in der internationalen Politik seit den 1940er Jahren (2014, forthcoming in English with OUP). He has also specialized in the history of German historiography and scholarship and is currently working on a book on international politics in the twentieth century.
