The India China Institute and the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs at the New School invites you to a half-day symposium to honor the intellectual contributions of Professor L.H.M Ling to Critical International Relations Theory.
Professor Ling was a path-breaking scholar, and her work will remain essential to engaging critically with the epistemological assumptions of International Relations and reimagining the shape of identities outside of the confines of the Westphalian state. Her work was instrumental in accommodating marginalized identities into mainstream theoretical discourses. Likewise, Professor Ling was a pioneer of post-colonial and feminist approaches, and in 2018, she was honored as Eminent Scholar by Feminist Theory and Gender Studies section of the International Studies Association. She was also a prolific author and a dedicated professor with a unique interdisciplinary approach
Throughout her career, Professor L.H.M Ling explored the potential for art, music, cuisines, and aesthetics to provide a platform for cultural exchange and understanding of different perspectives on world politics. The seminar “Worldly World Orders: Building on the legacy of L.H.M Ling”, seeks to honor Professor L.H.M Ling and encourage the exchange of ideas on new methods and theories across disciplines, between leading scholars, practitioners, researchers and junior scholars interested in exploring new frameworks and alternative ontologies of world politics. The Seminar will include three panels and will feature the work of scholars and researchers who have worked with Professor L.H.M Ling in the past.
A reception and reading session of Professor Ling’s play “A Fairy Tale of Science” will follow the symposium at 5:00 PM.
