Originally from Teresina, Brazil, I hold a B.A in International Relations from the University of Brasilia (UnB) and an MSc in International Relations Theory (distinction) from the LSE. Before commencing my PhD at the LSE, I taught Contemporary IR theories at the University of Brasilia (UnB). Currently, I work as a Deputy Editor at Millennium: Journal of International Studies.
Matter, Language, and beyond: International Relations, Territory, and the politics of différance
This project engages in conversation with Poststructural Theory and New Materialisms in order to critique and interrogate the way the residual binary Matter/Language is naturalised and, not so infrequently, depoliticised in the discipline of IR. In so doing, it seeks to: 1) offer a theoretical tool to more effectively trace how matter and language are enacted; 2) politicise the divide matter/language, extending the domain of ‘the political’ in IR; and 3) provide IR with a novel understanding of how territory and borders are enacted in World Politics.
