22: Prof. Glenda Sluga on multilateralism, internationalism, and our capacity to imagine a better world.

March 27, 2020

Welcome to Episode 22, featuring Glenda Sluga, Professor of International History at the University of Sydney. She's the author of the book Internationalism in the Age of Nationalism, among other publications, and her research interests span from nationalism and internationalisms, to global and international history, diplomatic history, women and gender, peacemaking, and more.  

She visited the Library recently for a debate on the Evolution of Multilateralism, Perspectives from the Global South. We have a video recording of that Library Talk if you’d like to check it out. We also invited her for a conversation on the podcast, where she shares her thoughts on the meanings of multilateralism and internationalism. What are the differences and connections between the two, and why is this important? We also look at her views on how multilateralism has evolved over the past century, how it’s impacted such areas as gender equality, and also how multilateralism is linked to our everyday lives and our understanding of our place in the world.
