Fellow’s contribution to Alternative Globalization published by Indiana University Press

AIAS Fellow and historian Bogdan C. Iacob has contributed to the new book 'Alternative Globalization: Eastern Europe and the Postcolonial World', which explores socialist states’ interactions with newly independent peoples emerging from the collapse of Western empires.

Book cover: Indiana University Press.

AIAS Fellow, historian Bogdan C. Iacob contributes with the book chapter entitled "Southeast by Global South: The Balkans, UNESCO, and the Cold War", in which Iacob analyzes the connections and common ideas between Southeast European elites and representatives of the decolonized world within international organizations, focusing on projects funded by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. 

The contribution by Bogdan C. Iacob argues that such interactions across “peripheries” shed fresh light on alternative global entanglements that have challenged marginalization and/or dependency within Cold War hierarchies.
