Evolution of the International System, c. 1815 to the Present

This three-part seminar offers an interpretative historical survey of modern international relations from perspectives informed by race, colonialism, and empire. Opening with a review of their overlapping epistemologies, it examines the role of revolution/counterrevolution and insurgency/counter-insurgency across the world in shaping power relations in the international system, before finally exploring its fraught relationship with the empire and the nation state.
