Time, Temporality and Global Politics

Andrew Hom (Editor), Christopher Mcintosh (Editor), Alasdair Mackay (Editor), Liam PD Stockdale (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


International Relations scholars have traditionally expressed little direct
interest in addressing time and temporality. Yet, assumptions about
temporality are at the core of many theories of world politics and time is a
crucial component of the human condition and our social reality. Today, a
small but emerging strand of literature has emerged to meet questions
concerning time and temporality and its relationship to International Relations
head on. This volume provides a platform to continue this work.
The chapters in this book address subjects such as identity, terrorism, war,
gender relations, global ethics and governance in order to demonstrate how
focusing on the temporal aspects of such phenomena can enhance our
understanding of the world.
