Grupo de Estudios de Relaciones Internacionales (International Relations Studies Group)

In March 2005 we published the first issue of our journal titled "New theoretical tendencies, new political phenomena". In this issue Francisco Javier Peñas asked: is IR theory possible? Peñas analysed the difficulties we come across when theorizing, the need for theory and the most relevant theoretical tendencies of the moment. He argued that our possibilities for generating knowledge are always connected to questions regarding what and how we come to know the world. The ways in which we respond to these two questions are fundamental in defining the type of theory we do.

Sport

Friday 1st November 2013 – Sunday 3rd November 2013
Athens, Greece

Call for Presentations
Who benefits from sport? The question in the modern world is complex, and demands inter-disciplinary approaches to its solution. Sport in modernity is an everyday part of leisure lives, an aspirational physical activity or something that gives people a sense of belonging through being sports fans. Sport can be a vehicle for social and economic development, yet the economic and political formations of globalisation and modernity bring the spectre of contracts, deals, profits and the pursuit of glory at the expense of everything good about sport.

National Seminar on "Modernity and Indian Theatre", September 27 & 28, 2013

Monday, March 25, 2013 - 6:07am
Department of English, Gauhati University

'Modern' Indian theatre is fashioned by western as well as indigenous theatrical traditions. This theatre as we know it is also urban, having evolved from its early avatars in 19th century Bombay and Kolkata, to the multifaceted, national and postcolonial construct that it is today. Current ideas of the 'modern' and 'modernity' become more complex and throw up remarkably challenging questions when looked at through the prism of Indian theatre and theatre criticism. It is difficult to define 'modern' Indian theatre as a discipline with specific inbuilt notions of modernity that renders it significantly different from its earlier phases.
