Non-West Approaches to World

Spring 2019

Taught By: Corinna Mullin

Section: A

CRN: 7213

Credits: 3

Scholars of international relations increasingly recognize the need to take into account non-Western, non-Westphalian understandings of the world and its version of world politics. Yet they are usually at a loss as to how to do so. Few IR scholars in the West (including many from the non-West) are trained in how so-called Others think about, relate to, and act in the world. This course aims to amend this gap, albeit in a limited way. We will cover three world traditions and how they see/treat politics: Confucianism, Hinduism, and Islam. This course, however, will not be a comparative religion/philosophy course. We will not study these world traditions just for the sake of it. Rather, we will examine specifically how we can aspire towards an integrated yet democratic global politics where all voices, not just the Westaphalian one, is both heard and heeded.
