Revisiting the North/South Binary: Towards a Thirding Lens


14:00 - 16:00 | 28 January 2020 | CRASSH Meeting Room, Alison Richard Building, University of Cambridge.

At this seminar in the cum panis series, we are joined by Sebastian Haug (University of Cambridge), to discuss some of his ongoing research.

Abstract:
In this seminar gloknos associate member Sebastian Haug will share part of his PhD research on North/South dynamics in international development politics. Based on an in-depth study of Mexico and Turkey as actors and spaces at odds with the evolving but sticky division between ‘North’ and ‘South’, Sebastian builds on insights from liminality research, queer studies and the spatial turn in the social sciences to develop the Thirding Lens: a heuristic to approach and make sense of phenomena that do not fit with dominant binaries.
