Forschungsthema am Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften:
»Missing voices in the history of international thought. A critical re-evaluation of global thinking since 1880«

International thought of the last century and a half is not exhausted by what is remembered by the academic field of International Relations (IR). Indeed, IR itself even tends to forget large parts of its own past theorising. This project looks at how several of these lost narratives have been recovered in IR, with particular emphasis on lost approaches dealing with political economy, political geography, feminism, race and imperialism. This includes approaches outside of the English speaking world. I am particularly interested in how the recovery of past approaches affects our interpretations of both the origins and the nature of IR and international thought. (Lucian Ashworth)
