This event is the 4th seminar in the series: Methods in Insecure Worlds, a collaboration between The Open University, the University of Edinburgh, King’s College London, and the University of Manchester. Co-sponsored by the Enactments Research Programme (CCIG) & the journal International Political Sociology, this seminar aims at exploring post-human methods. The aim of the seminar is to reflect on methodological implications of growing references to actor-network theory, posthumanism, complexity, big data, and new materialism in international studies, and the social sciences more generally. In addition, through discussing methods the seminar seeks to open for debate the currently silent tension between the support and critique of (international) humanitarianism and the posthuman and materialist questioning of subject driven international history and practice.
