Ideas and Identities

A Festschrift for Andre Liebich

Edited By Jaci Eisenberg and Davide Rodogno

This volume gathers contributions at the intersection of history and politics. The essays, covering such topics as diverse as Italian identity in the Tientsin concession, international refugee policies in the interwar period and after, and the myths and realities of the Ukrainian-Russian encounter in independent Ukraine, show that history provides better grounding as well as a more suitable paradigm for the study of politics than economics or other hard sciences. All of the contributors have a common link – doctoral work supervised and shaped by Professor Andre Liebich – but have since expanded widely in the world. Hence, the authors of this work at once share a common base and yet benefit from diverse viewpoints.

This volume is derived from scientific contributions presented at a one-day colloquium, “Ideas and Identities,” organized by the co-editors in honor of Andre Liebich on the occasion of his retirement. The colloquium was held at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) in Geneva, Switzerland on 3 May 2013.

The editors would like to thank Philippe Burrin, Director of the Graduate Institute, and Gareth Austin, 2012–2013 Chair of the Graduate Institute’s Department of International History, for their material support towards the successful one-day colloquium on “Ideas and Identities” held at the Graduate Institute in Geneva on 3 May 2013. Without their assistance the success of the conference from which these works are derived would not have been possible. The editors would also like to thank Valérie von Daeniken of the Graduate Institute’s Department of International History for her logistical assistance with the preparation of the conference. Chairs Vicken Cheterian, Emmanuel Dalle Mulle, and Barbara Martin provided excellent intellectual participation the day of the conference. The late Hayat Salam-Liebich provided many wonderful photos for the slideshow which was presented at the closing of the colloquium.

The editors thank Marc Galvin of the Publications Department at the Graduate Institute for his material support towards publication of this volume, as well as the services of his department towards the typesetting of the volume. Thanks also to Emmanuel Dalle Mulle and Barbara Martin who both provided critical commentary on several contributions between the conference...
