Yale University

Patrick Cohrs is an Associate Professor History & International Affairs at Yale University, having received his doctorate from the University of Oxford in 2002. He has held fellowships at the Center for European Studies and the Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University. Before coming to Yale, he was the Alistair Horne Fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford, and taught at Humboldt University Berlin. He is the author of The Unfinished Peace after World War I: America, Britain and the Stabilisation of Europe, 1919–1932 (Cambridge University Press, 2006). Professor Cohrs is currently working on an international history of the transformation of the transatlantic order in the 20th century. It reappraises American and European pursuits of a more durable and legitimate international order from the era of the First World War to the Cold War and explores how far they contributed to the emergence of an unprecedented peace system. He teaches courses in modern international history, particularly on the United States and the world, the history of global, transatlantic and European international politics, and classic and new approaches to international history. He is one of the co-founders of the Yale International History programme. Professor Cohrs is also affiliated with the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies and International Security Studies at Yale.
