Invited speaker: Shelley Moorhead

Introduction: Björn Lingner

Knowledge production and international politics and relations can be closely interlinked. An example of this is the discussion on reparations and reconciliation. This discussion is not only about historical responsibility in regards to colonization and slavery, it can also work as an important example of how contemporary knowledge production, racism, the politics of location are connected to politics and international relations. This seminar explores the above.
