The International Society Research Group, led by Glenda Sluga (History), with colleagues from Government and IR, History, Museum Studies, Sociology and Social Policy, have received a Faculty of Arts Collaborative Research Scheme grant.
International society is a concept coined in the twentieth century in the context of the rise of international organizations, networks, and ideologies. While international society supposed a world of states, it has come to suggest a more transformative conception of the international, as a sphere in which transnational networks, practices, and institutions are fundamentally altering the ways in which global politics might work. For social scientists and historians, international society encompasses a range of intellectual and scholarly research questions pertinent to the contemporary world, including the past, present and future of global civil society, the international public sphere, international institutions, globalism, and internationalism.
Other members of the research group are Julia Horne and Margaret Poulos (History/SOPHI), as well as Michael Humphreys, Danielle Celermajer, Charlotte Epstein
Congratulations to all involved.
