POL281 Global Theory (POL281A - Autumn)

Credits: 15
Semester: A

Module Convenor: Dr Clive Gabay
Overlap: None
Prerequisite: None

This module takes five key thinkers whose work emerges from experiences/histories of colonialism and racism to ask how international order(ing) has been understood by those standing outside of or in conversation with the Western canon, thinking globally. Thinking globally means thinking seemingly disparate socio-political phenomena and forces together and in connection (I.e., capitalism, racism, patriarchy, colonialism, etc.). This is a defining feature of the intellectuals and thinkers that will be explored on the module, such as Edward Said, Gloria Anzaldua and Cedric Robinson.
