By the end of the week, the third edition of the International Political Sociology (IPS) Winter School will come to its end. These days were marked by marvelous discussions and lectures that certainly not only made us think critically about the International Relations area of study and reach satisfactory conclusions but also allowed us to get along with each other and create a dynamic and joyful academic environment. Two publics events were held after the regular classes: “Borders, boundaries, frontiers” and “Why Is a Feminist Curiosity So Crucial?”. These events contributed to expand the IPS discussions to a large audience. Soon, all videos of the School’s public events will be available on the blog.
Yesterday the IPS Winter School held the second roundtable of the event, with Professors Cynthia Enloe, Heather Johnson, Carolina Moulin Aguiar and Jef Huysmans. The panel took place at PUC-Rio’s B8 Auditorium; the Professors discussed the theme “Borders, boundaries, frontiers“.
Also yesterday, a public lecture was held at the School with Professor Cynthia Enloe, who sought to answer the question “In Times Such As These, In A World Such As This … Why Is A Feminist Curiosity So Crucial?“. With a relaxed tone, Professor Enloe was cheered by those present at the end of the event.
It has been a pleasure to have you all here with us and we hope to see you next year!
