'Historical Legacies in International Affairs'

United Nations poster

A 1943 poster produced by the U.S. Office of War Information pushes for support of the United Nations, a term used after the 1942 Declaration of the United Nations to refer to the Allies. The term would come to be applied to the organization that exists today with the signing of the United Nations Charter in 1945.

Did Winston Churchill's call for a "United States of Europe" following World War II help influence the European Union as we know it today? What are the consequences of using designs from an earlier era to resolve consequences of our contemporary world?

On Friday, Oct. 27, scholars and students from Temple and beyond with gather to discuss the purpose of 20th-century international institutions in the 21st-century world in a conference titled “Historical Legacies in International Affairs.” The conference is co-sponsored by the department of political science, the center for the Humanities at Temple, and the Penn-Temple European Studies Colloquium, and is open to the Temple community.

Temple faculty members who will present during the conference include: Orfeo Fioretos (political science), Richard Immerman (history), and Vladislav Zubock (history). The conference runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will be held on the ninth floor of Gladfelter Hall, in the Russell Weigley room.
