The Global Development Studies (GDS) Section invites you to join a roundtable on February 5, 2021 at 11am ET (4 pm GMT) that celebrates, and critically engages with, the recent publication of Tickner and Smith’s "International Relations from the Global South: Worlds of Difference.” This book challenges the implicit notions inherent in most existing International Relations (IR) scholarship and instead presents the subject as seen from different vantage points in the global South. The book encourages readers to consider how key ideas have been developed in the discipline, and through systematic interventions by contributors from around the globe, aims at both transforming and enriching the dominant terms of scholarly debate. This book is an empowering, critical and reflexive tool for thinking about the diversity of experiences of international relations and for placing them front and center in the classroom will help professors and students in both the global North and the global South envision the world differently. In addition to general, introductory IR courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels it will appeal to courses on sociology and historiography of knowledge, globalization, neoliberalism, security, the state, imperialism and international political economy. This roundtable brings together the book’s editors, chapter contributors, and members of the GDS community to discuss the book’s contribution to the discipline as well as possible ways of incorporating it into the classroom.
