But when looking closely at the archival record, one cannot help but notice how ubiquitous the talk of peace was in international relations. By shining the archival spotlight on peace rather than war, Petra Goedde shows that a transnational politics of peace emerged that involved both high level diplomats and grassroots activists; was full of Orwellian contradictions and absurdities; and ultimately lay at the core of the international transformations of the 1960s, most prominently the rise of détente. 4:00pm – 5:30pm Petra Goedde is a specialist in transnational, culture, gender history, and the history of cultural globalization. She is Associate Professor of History at Temple University and co-editor of the Journal Diplomatic History .
