International Security Studies continues its Spring 2024 ISS Colloquium Series with a presentation by Madelyn Lugli, a Kissinger Visiting Scholar Predoctoral Fellow at the Johnson Center for the Study of American Diplomacy. Lugli will present “The Middlemen: A New History of 1919’s New Diplomacy, Told From “The Middle.”” which explores the Paris Peace Conference, not from above or below, but rather from the middle. It considers the perspective of the young, mid-level participants, such as William Bullitt, Harold Nicolson, and John Maynard Keynes, who came to Paris with, but not as, the Conference’s key decision-makers. The dissertation chapter analyzes the frustrating experiences of these young men during the Conference, as well as their later bombastic reactions to its conclusion.

Lugli is a PhD candidate in History at Northwestern University where she is completing a dissertation that considers the ways in which emotions and personal relationships forged foreign affairs during the interwar period.

This event is open to the Yale community; lunch will be provided. Please register to receive the reading materials for this colloquium.
