Clare Monagle: "Neo-medievalism and the Postcolonial: International Relations Theory and Temporality"
October 30, 2013 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Though an historian of medieval thought, Clare Monagle’s most recent work turns to the twentieth-century and the deployment of the Middle Ages in International Relations Theory. Monagle argues that charting the medieval in this frame enables a new insight into the understanding of historical time that informs the discipline of international relations.
Clare Monagle is a graduate of Monash and the Johns Hopkins Universities. She received her PhD in 2007. She is broadly interested in history of intellectuals in the Middle Ages, as well as the histories of the institutions that housed them. Her work is also concerned with the “medievalism” of twentieth and twenty-first century thought, that is, the uses to which the concept of the medieval is put within definitions of modernity and progress.
