Reorienting Realism:

Context, Crisis and Critique

A workshop to be held at the University of Edinburgh, June 23-24

Sponsored by the Royal Society of Edinburgh

This workshop is intended to investigate the revival of interest in ‘classical’ Realism since the turn of the millennium. The participants critically engage with Realism and examine its philosophical and historical roots within the context of modernity’s various crises.  The workshop is designed to appeal to those who are interested in the history of international thought, critical theory, and the contemporary relevance of Realism as a theory of International Relations.
