Militarization, Surveillance and Violence in Contemporary World Politics | Second Week roundtable

We are pleased to invite you to the our second public event of the fourth edition of the IPS Winter School.

Militarization, Surveillance and Violence in Contemporary World Politics

Militarization plays a central role in the normalization of violence in multiple social and political sites in international relations today. As the diffusion of surveillance disperses insecurities and intensifies exceptions and emergencies, the military ethos occupies an increasingly central place in everyday life and political imaginations. The roundtable discusses the implication of theses processes in the changing practices of counterinsurgency, government of mobility; urban policing; humanitarian operations and other instances of contemporary world politics.

Participants

Jef Huysmans, Queen Mary University of London
Claudia Aradau, King’s College London
Katharine Hall, Queen Mary University of London
Chair | Marta Fernandez , PUC-Rio

The reemergence of Nationalism in the Contemporary World Politics | First Week Roundtable

We are pleased to invite you to the our first public event of the fourth edition of the IPS Winter School.

The reemergence of Nationalisms in the Contemporary World Politics

After being considered a spent force in the age of high modernity, nationalism has reemerged in the context of post-globalization. This roundtable discusses the conditions that made possible political discourses that articulate notions of nation and people in order to defend the state against perceived threats of fragmentation. It will also debate the multiple spaces and meanings produced by the different expressions of nationalism in contemporary world politics.

Participants

R. B. J. Walker, University of Victoria and PUC-Rio
Michael J. Shapiro, University of Hawaii
Angharad Closs Stephens, Swansea University
Chair: João P. Nogueira, PUC-Rio

July 5 – 4:15 p.m. @ B8 Auditorium, PUC-Rio.

 

The event will be held at B8 Auditorium, at PUC-Rio, campus Gávea.
