Initial details of the seminars and workshops our Guest Professors will offer are now available. We have two workshops:
  • The first, on Method, entitled Thinking the Event: Political Temporalities, and led by Michael J Shapiro, focuses on particular historical cases that can be interpreted with the help of a “critical philosophical trajectory”: The Hiroshima bombing, Hurricane Katrina, and the contemporary sweatshop factory. 
  • The second, on Storytelling, entitled Worlding the Postcolonial and led by Himadeep Muppidi, explores how we write other worlds into the colonial field of international relations and focuses on the task of writing itself.
