Class Notes

From the Instructor: This course introduces students to the study of International Relations (IR) as a discipline and as a way of thinking and knowing about the world. In this class, we will survey major theories of international relations including realism, liberal institutionalism, constructivism, and newer approaches such as postmodernism and feminism. We will thematically engage with key concepts that are relevant to the study of international relations today, looking at issues such as political economy, security, conflict, international institutions, and the environment. In doing so, we will apply new perspectives and insights to think critically about historical developments and contemporary international politics.
