Time and World Politics

Fall 2019

Taught By: Anne McNevin

Section: A

CRN: 7276

Credits: 3

What is the relationship between the conceptualisation of time and understandings of world politics? This course will investigate the temporal assumptions that sit behind contending approaches to world politics, drawing on mainstream, critical, and post-colonial forms of knowledge. Are different concepts of time informing these approaches incommensurable or is dialogue between them possible? As a way into these questions, the course will reflect on ideas in world politics that contain identifiable temporal elements, including, for instance: history, progress, emancipation, memory, innovation and logistics. The course will draw on a variety of interdisciplinary texts to consider the implications of time for thinking about the possibilities of politics and the politics of knowledge production.
