Robbie Shilliam (Johns Hopkins University, USA)



The recent articulation of multiple crises seems to have intensified and sped up a set of existing fractures and shifts in governance in the West as well as worldwide. Taking prompts from the events, so far, of 2020 – including increased inequality, public health emergencies, and innovations in data management – this presentation takes a narrative approach to ask: “How might some of humanity live within the global architecture of racism 5 years in the future?”


About the Speaker

Robbie Shilliam researches the political and intellectual complicities of colonialism and race in the global order. He is co-editor of the Rowman & Littlefield book series, Kilombo: International Relations and Colonial Question. Robbie was a co-founder of the Colonial/Postcolonial/Decolonial working group of the British International Studies Association and is a long-standing active member of the Global Development section of the International Studies Association.

Robbie is committed to building capacity in Political Science and International Relations for postcolonial teaching and learning. To that effect, he is presently writing a book for undergraduates which reveals the colonial and postcolonial roots of the academic study of politics as well as providing alternative routes of investigation and understanding. Decolonizing Politics will be published by Polity Press in 2020.
