Public Lecture “Postcolonial Theory, Postcolonial Feminism and International Relations” by Sheila Nair, Ph.D



“Postcolonial Theory, Postcolonial Feminism and International Relations”

The lecture will be conducted by Sheila Nair, Ph.D, Professor from Northern Arizona University, USA.

Why does the study of International Relations (IR) including the exploration of key issues such as migration, human rights, security, and development predominantly obscure the relationship between race, gender, sexuality, class and power? Although feminist scholarship in this field has had a long engagement with conventional IR over several decades and has brought to the forefront important ways that gender, sexuality, and power are irretrievably entangled, the intersections with race and class have been less obvious in mainstream feminist scholarship in the field. This talk addresses some of the ways that postcolonial theory and postcolonial feminism specifically advance our understanding of the power relations that sustain global hierarchies. The talk will highlight the interventions of postcolonial theory and postcolonial feminism and some of its main contributions and discuss some specific examples of postcolonial feminism’s approach in IR.

Date: Thursday, 14 September 2017
Time: 10.00 – 11.30 WIB
Place: 3rd floor, R. Persatuan, Notonagoro Building, Faculty of Philosophy UGM
