Keynote speaker: Professor Werner Bonefeld, University of York
The new challenges facing societies across the globe have dismantled the conventional politics of stability, consensus and peace. Faced with increasing complexity, unpredictability and chaos, the fields of politics and international relations are subject to rethinking the ways in which the political phenomena of the present day can be interpreted and explained.
The 5th Annual Nottingham Postgraduate Conference in Politics and International Relations invites postgraduate and early-career researchers to reflect upon the unfolding politics of disarray and the potential avenues for reinvigorating political research in the age of crisis. Submissions might include, but are not limited to:
- Re-imagining 'the Political'
- Transformations in Global Political Economy
- Geopolitics in Flux
- Social Movements of Resistance and Dissent
- Politics of Identity
- Past, Present and Future of European (Dis-) Integration
- British Politics in Crisis
- Extremism and Political Violence
- Technology Transforming Politics
- Politics of Popular Culture
