ESC Visiting Fellow awarded 2023 Prose Award

9 February 2023

Professor Patrick Cohrs, the current European Studies Centre Visiting Fellow, has been recognised by the Association of American Publishers in the 47th annual PROSE Awards, which honour scholarly works published in the last year. Professor Cohrs’ work The New Atlantic Order. The Transformation of International Politics, 1860-1933 (Cambridge, 2022) has been selected as the Category Winner for World History.

Now, Professor Cohrs is inviting anyone interested to an informal workshop to critique the works’ central concept of the ‘Long 20th Century’ (circa 1860-2022). The workshop, titled War, Peace and World Order in the “Long”20th Century: Challenges and Perspectives will take place on Monday, 20th February, from 4-5.30pm at the Department of Politics and International Relations (Manor Road Building, Seminar Room D).

Following an introduction of the “long” 20th century interpretation, the workshop aims to talk about its relevance for the study of global history and international relations. The debate will focus on how far this approach can indeed serve to open up new perspectives – on the overall transformation of the international order; on war, peace, security and reconstruction; on learning processes; on transnational movements and developments; on global, regional and national histories; on empires, imperialism and decolonisation; on changes in dominant ideas and ideologies – or any other aspects that the participants wish to discuss.

Professor Cohrs says

 “I am delighted to receive this recognition and now look forward all the more to feedback at the workshop”

The full programme is as follows:

• Chair: Edward Keene, Christ Church, Oxford

• Patrick O. Cohrs, St Antony’s College, Oxford: “Exploring the Transformation of World Order in the Long 20th Century”

• Patrick Quinton-Brown, Alonso Gurmendi Dunkelberg and John de Bahl, University of Oxford: “IR Perspectives on the Long 20th Century”

• Michael Jonas, Helmut-Schmidt-University Hamburg: “A Long 20th Century of Finnish-Russian Relations”

The New Atlantic Order is the second in a series of three volumes on the transformation of the modern Atlantic and global order. Prof Cohrs is currently working on the third and final volume, which will cover the second half of the long twentieth century (approx. 1933-2020).
