TIU Global Dialogue 15: Doing IR Differently: Relational Cosmologies Around the World


Based on a forum in International Studies Perspectives and a forthcoming special issue in Review of International Studies, this online panel addresses two challenges. First, what happens if we conceive of International Relations (IR) from a relational perspective by assuming relations as prior to the existence of entities. Second, it seeks to pluralize the sources of relational thinking in IR by showing how different cosmological traditions view relationality, suggesting the possibility of a pluriversal IR. Each participant will be asked to speak to the challenges above when answering the following question: how are they doing…

TIU Global Dialogue 14: Re-Orienting the History of International Relations


In 1685, a Persian embassy from the Safavid Empire (Iran) embarked upon a journey across the Indian Ocean to Siam (Thailand). A relic of this journey is the diplomatic account the Safīna-i Sulaimānī – the Ship of Sulaimān – written by the scribe of the Persian envoy. On the basis of this primary Persian source and other materials, Dr. Anahita Arian unsettles in this talk the conventional and Eurocentric narratives about the history of international relations in which Europe is routinely identified as the most powerful center and agent of the world economy, and as…

TIU International Affairs Seminar Series Event: “From ‘Golden Era’ to ‘Seriously Poisoned'”


As recently as 2018, the UK government was continuing to describe the UK-China relationship as being in a ‘golden era’, following a deliberate effort to position the UK as China’s number one partner in Europe even before the decision to leave the EU was taken. By the summer of 2020, China’s ambassador described the relationship as ‘seriously poisoned’ following a series of UK policy decisions that negatively impacted on China. Rhetoric aside, the trajectory of the UK-China relationship has changed substantively in a relatively short space of time. In this talk, I identify key developments…

TIU Global Dialogue 13: Tibet Question in China-Ascendant Geopolitics?


While China-ascendant geopolitics becomes an increasing reality, and the focus in Asia and beyond is on how other states can cooperate, compete, adjust or contain China, what is often missed is the weaponization of emotions, sensitivity, and “hurt” by the Chinese state. Any criticism of China on Uyghurs, Hong Kong, or Tibet leads to a reaction along the lines of “this is our internal affairs”, or “this hurts our national sentiments.” In this book talk, Prof. Dibyesh Anand will discuss how “hurt”, “national humiliation,” and “national sensitivity” are politically constructed foreign policy tools for China,…
