    History of Globalization and International Relations: Teaching

    I teach courses in the history of recent international relations, but also in German history and American Studies (in Dutch and in English), and themes connected to the recent history of globalization. 

    MA seminars:

    Koude Oorlog Crises (Cold War Crises)
    From Quasi War to the War on Terror: U.S. Domestic Responses to Foreign Policy Crises ("American Scares")

    Burgers en/in Oorlog (Citizens and/in War)
    The Euromissile Crisis, 1977-1987
    "Losing Earth?": International activism and diplomacy on climate change and sustainability since 1968 (with Roel van der Veen)


    BA seminars:
    Duitsland tussen Oost en West, 1923-1953 (Germany between East and West)
    De Vroege Koude Oorlog, 1945-1953 (The Early Cold War)
    The Long 1970s and the Return of Globalization
    Inleiding in de Geschiedenis (Introduction to History)
    Lecture courses:
    The Global Cold War and the Making of Our Times
    From Hiroshima to Punggye-Ri: Nuclear Weapons in International Politics since 1945
    History of Globalization and International Relations (with Elizabeth Buettner)
     

    History of Globalization and International Relations: Research

     

    My current research is on the Dutch role in NATO's 1979 Dual-Track decision on Theater Nuclear Forces (the "Euromissile" crisis of the late 1970s and early 1980s), and more generally (with special attention to peace activists) what could be called the anti-nuclear revolution of that era.
    Together with four colleagues and MTM Publishing in New York, I have published the Encyclopedia of the Cold War (Routledge, 2008). With a new editorial team, I am currently working on a digital version of this work, to be launched in 2021 or 2022 as the "Routledge Encyclopedia of the Cold War."
    My early research has focused on the role of Germany in the Cold War, for example the East-West struggle over Germany's future between 1945 and 1953/5.
    Another project has been the launch of Ostpolitik (1969-1970) as seen from the Nixon White House.
    I have also published on the recent history of transatlantic relations, and on the perilous state of the post-1945 "world order."
