Visiting Fellow at the Max Planck Institute

Georgia State University

Carolyn Biltoft is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne and an Assistant Professor of History at Georgia State University in Atlanta. She has a broad interest in both the structural and conceptual effects of global integration as traceable in the history of international institutions, multinational corporations and international political economy.

She is currently working on a manuscript entitled Politics and Economies of Scale: Experiments in Global Governance at the League of Nations.

Her current book project presents the League of Nations as a novel global institutional form. It shows how the League’s experimental efforts to coordinate the world’s political and economic life emerged within and effected significant transformations in the international system between 1919 and 1945. In addition to the book manuscript, she is pursuing research projects on how certain economic theories, including monetary theory, marked a response to wider shifts in the nature and functioning of the global economic system.
