Podcast: Emancipation without agenda? – The recovery of non-Western subjecthood and its implications for the study of world politics

Podcast: Emancipation without agenda? – The recovery of non-Western subjecthood and its implications for the study of world politics
Description
This discussion assembled scholars from different fields and of diverse regional expertise to present the different forms of non-Western subjecthood that they identify or envisage in order to discuss the possibility and constellations of non-Western subjecthood and corresponding forms of agency. The event thus made an attempt to link recent theoretical debates about a 'post-Western' IR with insights from other disciplines to show how post-colonial agency operates both within the framework of the international state system, but also appears in more diffuse and less obvious ways that serve to challenge and re-shape this system.
