This project has lead to various publications, including my second monograph, Gift Exchange: The Transnational History of a Political Idea (Cambridge University Press, 2019), as well as various articles and book chapters that explore how international law and anthropology have shaped how global governance has operated in the long twentieth century. It builds on the work of historians of ideas who have called on scholars to “provincialize Europe” or moved to a “global  history,” thereby paying attention to the interactions between the global context and regional and/or imperial processes, in contrast to conventional accounts of academic disciplines that focus on national legacies, intellectual or otherwise.

The latest output, supported by the Fond National Suisse, is a special issue of Durkheimian Studies, which proposes a global intellectual history of what we may call the “sciences of the international” in the twentieth century.
