Revisiting the North/South Binary: Towards a Thirding Lens

28 January 2020, 14:00 - 16:00

CRASSH Meeting Room, Alison Richard Building, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

All are invited to join us for this event in the 'cum panis' seminar series, hosted by gloknos at CRASSH. The 'cum panis' seminars are a space to share work currently in progress and break bread (or cake!) with new intellectual companions.

In this session we are joined by Sebastian Haug (University of Cambridge) to hear about his ongoing research.

Sebastian will share part of his PhD research on North/South dynamics in international development politics. Based on an in-depth study of Mexico and Turkey as actors and spaces at odds with the evolving but sticky division between ‘North’ and ‘South’, Sebastian builds on insights from liminality research, queer studies and the spatial turn in the social sciences to develop the Thirding Lens: a heuristic to approach and make sense of phenomena that do not fit with dominant binaries. 

This event is free to attend, but in order to receive the advance reading material for this session please email to confirm your attendance.
