Global IR in Teaching and Research

This is a past event.

Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 3:30am to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

The study of world politics has long been markedby Eurocentric assumptions and perspectives. Inrecent years, many scholars in international studieshave called for an approach to world politics that ismore attentive to the histories and experiences ofthe nonwestern world, more critical of the legacyof imperialism and the ways it has shaped thediscipline, and rejects many of the foundationalmyths that continue to inform IR research andpedagogy. This call for a "Global IR" has importantimplications not only for how we study worldpolitics but also for how we teach IR in theclassroom.
