Roundtable On The Intimacies Of Four Continents
This podcast is a recording of a roundtable hosted at the 2020 Annual Conference of Millennium: Journal of International Studies - 'Entanglements and Detachments in World Politics'.
Disordering “The Intimacies of Four Continents”: A Reading Group
Chair: Meera Sabaratnam
Participants: Rahul Rao, Joe Hoover, Paul Kirby, Nivi Manchanda, Charmaine Chua, Srdjan Vucetic
This panel brings together members of the collective blog The Disorder of Things to read and comment on Lisa Lowe’s book The Intimacies of Four Continents. Centrally concerned with the nature of historical entanglements, Lowe’s work locates what has been understood as liberal humanism within the matrix of empire, racial hierarchies and interconnectedness that transformed the world in recent centuries. The contributors to this round table will read the book and discuss its general arguments plus the specific contributions of each chapter, as well as reflecting on how the methods, analysis and conclusions of Lowe’s book may contribute to shifting our understanding of the international and future directions for research. Audience members are also encouraged to read and participate in the discussion. The panel aims to record the discussion to publish as a podcast on The Disorder of Things blog.

Decolonising The Academy
In this month's podcast I'm joined Dalia Gebrial from Rhodes Must Fall Oxford and two stalwarts of TDOT, Meera and Robbie, to discuss 'Decolonising the Academy'. We take a look at the Rhodes Must Fall campaign and its implications for understanding the relationship between higher education, coloniality and 'race'. We also ask why is my curriculum white? What can be done change the way in which knowledge is produced and taught in universities? Finally, we explore how decolonising the academy might relate to anti-colonial and anti-racist struggles taking place outside of the university.
