Sixth Global International Studies Conference
The ‘International’ Around the World: Multiple Voices, Alternative Orders
Buenos Aires, Argentina
June 28th - July 1st, 2022
We are pleased to announce WISC’s Sixth Global International Studies Conference, which was originally scheduled for July 2020, will take place in Buenos Aires between June 28th - July 1st, 2022. Hosted for the first time in Latin America, the conference seeks to include different voices from and around the world regarding different ways to study, explain, understand, and make sense of international studies in general, and international relations in particular.
The world has become a complicated, complex and fascinating place, where multiple plays and voices are unfolding. Those voices come not only from great powers and nation-states, but increasingly from non-state actors and individuals, people at the margins of world politics, silenced voices lost in the cacophony of current events. Consequently, international studies are more than state power and international relations in the traditional sense. With the aim of developing a dialogue between students and scholars from different latitudes and hemispheres, we welcome proposals that include theoretical and empirical studies that revisit historical and conceptual assumptions and scenarios about the ‘international’ and about world orders, enrich our understanding of current international affairs, and/or suggest institutional innovations for improving the quality of global public policy.
The academic program for the conference will be organized in the format of sections composed of panels and/or roundtables. Each panel will include between four and five paper presentations, or a roundtable of up to eight participants. Each session should have a chair, plus a discussant in the case of a paper panel. The language of the conference is English, with a limited number of panels in Spanish/Portuguese.
