Based on a forum in International Studies Perspectives and a forthcoming special issue in Review of International Studies, this online panel addresses two challenges. First, what happens if we conceive of International Relations (IR) from a relational perspective by assuming relations as prior to the existence of entities. Second, it seeks to pluralize the sources of relational thinking in IR by showing how different cosmological traditions view relationality, suggesting the possibility of a pluriversal IR. Each participant will be asked to speak to the challenges above when answering the following question: how are they doing IR differently?

This talk is now available on our TIU Global Dialogue YouTube channel. Check it out here.
