Falling Apart: American Power in a Failing Global Order, 1919–1939

Lecture Description

In an era of Brexit, Trumpism, and shifting centers of global power, how should we think about the nature and possibilities of U.S. power in an unstable world order? This lecture looks at the interwar period of the first half of the twentieth century in order to contemplate how Americans thought about and navigated an uncertain global environment during the long aftermath of World War I, as international relations unraveled and the world fell apart in the 1920s and 1930s.
