gloknos Annual Lecture – Prof Luis Lobo-Guerrero

28 October 2019, 17:00 - 19:00

Room S2, Alison Richard Building, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

gloknos is delighted to welcome Prof Luis Lobo-Guerrero (University of Groningen) to present as part of our annual lecture series.

A title and abstract for this event will be made available in due course. 


Prof. Luis Lobo-Guerrero is, since 2013, Professor and Chair of History and Theory of International Relations at the University of Groningen where he is also Director of the Centre for International Relations Research. His interests converge around two broad areas: the politics of global connectivities, and modes of reasoning about order, power and governance. An edited volume that begins to bring them together is forthcoming in 2019, as part of the Global Epistemics book series, under the title of Imaginaries of Connectivity: The Making of Novel Spaces of Governance (Rowman and Littlefield).

Attendance is free but spaces are limited, so please email to reserve your seat. Please be aware that we will take an audio recording of this event, which may include any questions and responses delivered by the audience.
