Contemporary History and International Relations Research Seminar (CHIRRS) year 2019-2020

The aim of the seminar is to foster an inclusive interdisciplinary dialogue about issues in the fields of Contemporary History and International Relations. It will question the framing and paradigms of these fields over time, broadly investigating international society.

The seminar will address questions such as how decolonisation provides a context for current debates on migration; how changing conceptions of human security can inform debates about environmental and social justice questions across the globe; how global inequality influences conceptions of political economy and develop critical approaches to the debate about the normative issues in security dilemmas.

Under CHIRRS we have 3 types of event: the regular Research Seminars, a more ad hoc Current Events in Perspective series and workshops on themes that are of interest to the research community. You can contact chirrs@hum.leidenuniv.nl if you'd like to be added to the CHIRRS mailing list.
