LAUREATE RESEARCH PROGRAM IN INTERNATIONAL HISTORY
Funded by the Australian Research Council, the Laureate Research Program in International History is devoted to advancing our understanding of the international and internationalist origins of the global present. Led by Professor Glenda Sluga, this team of historians is investigating the international history of globalization from the perspective of people and ideas, with special attention to how, since the nineteenth century, economic ideas have influenced the intellectual, institutional and legal frameworks of today's global order. Working in cooperation with international institutions such as UNESCO, this research program aims to regenerate public debate concerning globalization seen through the past, present and future of international political and economic institutions.
Held at Leiden University from 14-16 January 2016, the conference investigates the multifaceted relationship between democracy and the nation-state, not only in Europe but also in other parts of the world.
This workshop will focus on the place of heritage in the context of modern international history, and interpretative strategies for thinking about international sites of memory and heritage.
