The Academic Legacies of British Empire: Social Anthropology and International Relations

  #ECPRHouseSeries

House Series – The Stein Rokkan Edition

University of Edinburgh & Online

Tuesday 19 April

Speaker – Robbie Shilliam, Johns Hopkins University

Our renowned Stein Rokkan Lecture is typically held annually as part of our Joint Sessions of Workshops. For the second year running, we are thrilled to have opened the Stein Rokkan Lecture to the wider ECPR community, as part of our House Series. 

Delivered by Robbie Shilliam, this talk spoke to the contemporary moral panic over 'wokeness', its supposed infiltration into academic spaces and its purported degeneration of the ethos of higher education.

Free and open to all

This 90-minute lecture made the case that so-called 'domestic' race relations are best understood as an internationalised discourse on black competency to inhabit white spaces and an important part of the academic development of British International Relations.

Good to know
