The Division of Global Affairs was strongly represented at the annual conference of the International Relations Journal Millennium on “Racialized Realities in World Politics”. From October 22-23 more than 100 scholars, researchers, students and activists met at the London School of Economics to discuss how race and racism feature in international relations, what their study can bring to the field and why these important dynamics can no longer be ignored.
Among the attendants, were three of DGA’s very own. DGA affiliated faculty member Dr. Alison Howell of Rutgers University and DGA doctoral students Kelsey Lizotte and Sabrina Axster all presented their research.
Prof. Howell presented on “Resilience and Racism: War and the Martial Politics of Science” and, together with co-author Dr. Melanie Richter-Montpetit from the University of Sheffield on “Is (Critical) Security Studies Racist? How a Sociology of Race and Imperialism Can Redefine the Study of Security”. Kelsey Lizotte presented part of her doctoral research with a paper on “Rethinking Reparations: Repairing the Past and Transforming History” while Sabrina Axster presented a paper she had prepared during her core course in Genocide at DGA: “Beyond the Obvious: Unpacking the Racialized Underpinnings of Refugee Myths and Discourse”.
