International Relations as a Social Science (IRSS)
This working group brings together scholars and students interested in questioning the way we think and we do IR, be it from a theoretical, epistemological, ontological or methodological perspective. We aim to be pluralistic and to foster fruitful dialogue with participants from all areas of international studies. We centre on developing questions and areas often overlooked, marginalised or taken for granted in the discipline. For example, our last two workshops focused on problematising ‘the local’ and ‘the international’ as categories of analysis, and on accounting for the performativity of academic discourses.
