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

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.
