What is International Studies? In the most literal reading, International Studies implies the study of the relationship and interaction between nations. Thus interpreted, there would seem little to distinguish International Studies from the more commonly recognizable International Relations. Yet the program in International Studies carries a distinctive name, and comprises a distinctive approach, based on a shared conviction that a viable understanding of the relationship and interaction between nations and peoples of the world must question and go beyond the static, simplistic, and Eurocentric assumptions and conceptualisations that underlie conventional understandings of international relations. This course therefore seeks to initiate a critical exploration of the making of “us” and “them” through an introduction to the methods and perspectives of a range of disciplines and the potential strengths of their (“interdisciplinary”) combination, thereby fostering a genuinely global, historically-informed awareness of what we share, what divides us, and the processes out of which the contemporary global order of nation-states emerged.

This lecture will be taught in English to an international audience
