Remapping IR: Protean Power: Exploring the Uncertain and Unexpected in World Politics

February 12, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Despite being repeatedly surprised by unexpected change and public debate, mainstream international relations scholarship continue to assume that the world is governed by calculable risk based on estimates of power. Protean power highlights and challenges this assumption by arguing for the acknowledgment of uncertainty as an important condition of political and social life.

Peter Katzenstein is the Walter S. Carpenter Professor of International Studies at Cornell University and a former President of the American Political Science Association.


The goal of Remapping IR is to showcase the diversity of cutting-edge approaches that exist to understand global politics. It intends to broaden the intellectual discussion by injecting diverse voices and alternative perspectives to our understanding of international studies.
