Berkeley Seminar on Global History with Or Rosenboim (University of London) | The Value of Space: Geopolitics, Geography and the Search for International Theory in the United States in the 1950s

Or Rosenboim is a prominent young historian of twentieth-century international thought. Published in 2017 by Princeton University Press, her first book, The Emergence of Globalism, explores the intellectual and ideological origins of the post-World War Two international order.

Rosenboim will be discussing a pre-circulated paper that explores the role (or absence) of spatial and geopolitical concepts in mid-twentieth century US international thought. Her work will be of particular interest to colleagues engaged with the histories of international relations and US global power, but Rosenboim's scholarship should also interest colleagues who are more broadly concerned with spatiality in the mid-century social sciences.
