From Selma to Moscow: How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign Policy

June 5, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Encina Hall East, Room E008 (Ground floor, entrance on Arguello Way)

Join the Handa Center for a talk by Sarah B. Snyder, Associate Professor at American University's School of International Service. She is a historian of U.S. foreign relations who specializes in the history of the Cold War, human rights activism, and U.S. human rights policy.

Dr. Snyder is the author of From Selma to Moscow: How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign Policy, which explains how transnational connections and 1960s-era social movements inspired Americans to advocate for a new approach to human rights. Her first book, Human Rights Activism and the End of the Cold War: A Transnational History of the Helsinki Network, (Cambridge University Press), analyzes the development of a transnational network devoted to human rights advocacy and its contributions to the end of the Cold War.
