Eurocentrism, Historical Sociology and the Case against Post-colonialism

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Sep 27, 2015 | Theory Talks, John Hobson

In this transcript by the discussion forum Theory Talks, John Hobson outlines his idea on the Western-centric bias of international relations studies, the problems created by this bias, and how to address this issue. He discusses:

  • Viewing the West as the source of globalisation and innovation and why this image has remained persistent;
  • the significance of the Western origins of international relations theory;
  • his work on combining historical sociology with international relations; and
  • the interconnections and relations between the West and the ‘non-West’ and how this can benefit international relations. Talk71_Hobson.pdf
