Patricia Clavin is Fellow and Tutor in History, Jesus College and Professor of International History at the University of Oxford. She is completing a history of the economic and financial work of the League of Nations, and her new project, in collaboration with Sunil Amrith at Birkbeck, explores the role of international organizations in the history of security and development. In her lecture she will explore the ties between international efforts to reconstruct and ‘stabilize’ Austria, Hungary, Poland, Greece and Bulgaria after the First World War, to the ideas and practices of international development after 1945. It is a story of how bankers and economists sought to shape the world, and how their work was challenged and refashioned by nutritionists, agricultural lobbyists and activists less concerned with raising living standards than with protecting the ‘manner of life’.
