League of Nations Symposium

Published 25 Nov 2015

Australia in the World series of public lectures, seminars and symposia: League Of Nations: Histories, Legacies And Impact

The centennial of the First World War has prompted questions about its impact beyond 1918, one of which was the League of Nations. Formed in 1920 following the Paris Peace Conference and the Treaty of Versailles, the League of Nations had an ambitious agenda to check aggression and usher in a new world order following the decimation of war. While the League ultimately failed to prevent another world war its impact on the course of interwar history was varied and complex.

‘Australia in the World’ is a lecture and seminar series that presents international and transnational perspectives on the past. The series highlights the interconnectedness of past worlds and future challenges with speakers from around the country and across the globe.

Convened by Professor Joy Damousi (University of Melbourne) and Dr Patricia O’Brien (ANU)
