On June 29 and July 6, two roundtables were held at the IPS Winter School.
The first table, entitled “Structuralism and then: IPS and the Critique of Limits“, was mediated by Professor Roberto Yamato and was attended by Professors R. B. J. Walker, Michael J. Shapiro, Jef Huysmans and João P. Nogueira.
Already on June 06, Professors Cynthia Enloe, Heather Johnson, Carolina Moulin Aguiar and Professor Jef Huysmans discussed “Borders, boundaries, frontiers.”
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!
The Institute of International Relations is pleased to invite you to 2017 IPS Winter School public events. There will be two roundtables, one on June 29, with the theme “Structuralism and after: IPS and the Critique of Limits” and others on July 6 with the theme “Borders, boundaries, frontiers”.
“Structuralism and after: IPS and the Critique of Limits” will discuss ‘the limit’ as a conceptual device of critical engagements with ‘the international’ and the limitations of international political sociologies of the limit. What can international political sociology be when it takes as it’s starting point the primacy of heterogeneous relations, fracturing worlds and multiplicities?
Professors R. B. J. Walker, Michael J. Shapiro, Jef Huysmans, João P. Nogueira and Roberto Yamato will attend the panel, which will be held at 4:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the RDC Auditorium, PUC-Rio.
On July 6, the “Borders, boundaries, frontiers” table, which will be held from4:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., in Auditorium B8*, PUC-Rio, will address the issue of borders and boundaries, that have had a central role in defining some of the conceptual, methodological and epistemological markers of IPS’ research agenda.
The panel aims at assessing such contributions with a focus on the ways in which they have challenged the frontiers of the ‘international’. Cynthia Enloe,Heather Johnson, Carolina Moulin Aguiar and Professor Jef Huysmans will take part in the table.
The event will be held in English and there will be no simultaneous translation.
* The B8 Auditorium is located on the 8th floor of the Frings Building.
