Description

Elizabeth Borgwardt specializes in the History of International Law with a focus on human rights ideas and institutions. Her book, A New Deal for the World: America’s Vision for Human Rights, was published by the Belknap imprint of Harvard University Press and is in its fourth printing. New Deal for the World has been recognized as the best book in the history of ideas by the Organization of American Historians with the Merle Curti Book Award, as the best first book in U.S. Foreign Relations history by the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, and as the best first book on any historical topic by the History Honor Society. In addition to her Stanford doctorate, Borgwardt has earned a JD from Harvard Law School and an M.Phil. in International Relations from Cambridge University. She has held a Fulbright chair with the University of Heidelberg, where she remains a permanent faculty affiliate, and she has recently served as the Richard and Ann Pozen Visiting Professor of Human Rights at the University of Chicago. Borgwardt is currently co-editing a volume on Rethinking Grand Strategy, to be published by Oxford University Press. A volume of her academic papers and essays is forthcoming from Penn Press. Her manuscript on crimes against humanity in history, law, and politics is under contract with Alfred A. Knopf.
