EISA book launch event - The Handbook of Global Politics in the 22nd Century (Palgrave 2023)

How do scholars write the future of global politics? Written in futur antérieur style, the The Palgrave Handbook of Global Politics in the 22nd Century engages in world-building and imagines futures of IR. Set in a multiverse, 23 chapters draw on a range of possible themes and imaginaries, such as post-pandemic conditions, the Anthropocene, and not least academic practices and the role of researchers. A concluding chapter anchors these explorations in contemporary discussions. The book challenges IR and provides alternative imaginaries, rather than predicting future conditions for all humanity. The book invites readers to reflect on how thinking about the future has become an increasingly radical, but more than ever necessary act.

See the book’s website here including open access links to the introduction and conclusion. In the online launch event moderated by Sonia Lucarelli (Bologna), the book editors Ayşem Mert (Stockholm), Franziska Müller (Hamburg) and Laura Horn (Roskilde) will provide a brief outline of book, highlighting what academic science fiction can contribute to IR. Several contributors will offer flashtalk presentations of their chapters, and then there will be time for Q&A.
