Last week of classes in the third edition of the Winter School

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.
