  Economists, Global Travel, and German Imperial Politics  
(Academic)

Eric Grimmer-Solem (Wesleyan University) will speak on his most recent book Learning Empire: Globalization and the German Quest for World Status, 1875-1919 (Cambridge UP, 2019). His book examines the process of German globalization---a process that began in the 1870s, well before Germany acquired a colonial empire or extensive overseas commercial interests and comes to a dramatic end with the outbreak of World War I. Structured around the figures of five influential economists who shaped the German political landscape, Learning Empire explores how their overseas experiences shaped public perceptions of the world and Germany's place in it. Looking closely at German worldwide entanglements, Learning Empire recasts how we interpret German imperialism, the origins of the First World War, and the rise of Nazism and invites reflection on the challenges of globalization in the current century.
