Alumnus Nathan Andrews (MA ’10) will speak about racism and injustice in international relations during an online event hosted by Brock’s Department of Political Science next week.
Andrews, who specialized in international relations during his time at Brock, is now an Assistant Professor in the University of Northern British Columbia’s Department of Global and International Studies.
In his presentation, “Still a Not-So-International Discipline? Trends of Epistemic Racism and Injustice in International Relations,” Andrews will discuss the field of International Relations and the “knowledge segregation” that has been observed by those critiquing the discipline.
He will examine a recent survey of graduate courses offered in the U.S., U.K. and Africa to explore the role that pedagogical choices can play in “pushing and transforming the discipline beyond its conventional canon.”
The virtual event takes place via Microsoft Teams on Thursday, April 8 from noon to 1 p.m.
