A group of research scholars at universities across four continents will convene at the Graduate Institute of International Studies on August 25-26, 2011 for the conference, “Towards a New History of the League of Nations,”  dedicated to presenting and discussing the findings of those scholars who have been re-examining the League’s history through the use of its archives in Geneva. The conference program features panels on the League and security; on the role of experts and the practices of internationalism; on competing visions of global order; on popular internationalism and mobilization; and on the role of the League in the shaping understandings and regimes about rights.

Questions about the conference, including requests to attend and to “table” papers, should be addressed to Davide Rodogno, at davide.rodogno (at) graduateinstitute.ch.
