UNRAVELLING THE POLITICS OF DISARRAY
Fifth Annual Postgraduate Conference in Politics and International Relations
University of Nottingham, 15th June 2017
Clive Granger Building, University Park
The new challenges facing societies across the globe have dismantled the conventional politics of stability, consensus and peace. Faced with increasing complexity, unpredictability and chaos, the fields of politics and international relations are subject to rethinking the ways in which the political phenomena of the present day can be interpreted and explained.
The 5th Annual Nottingham Postgraduate Conference in Politics and International Relations invites postgraduate and early-career researchers to reflect upon the unfolding politics of disarray and the potential avenues for reinvigorating political research in the age of crisis. The conference will feature a keynote from Werner Bonefeld, Professor of Politics at the University of York.
Submissions might include, but are not limited to:
- Re-imagining ‘the Political’
- Transformations in Global Political Economy
- Geopolitics in Flux
- Social Movements of Resistance and Dissent
