International Relations Public Lecture:
When War Is Oikonomia By Other Means
Speaker: Professor Patricia Owens
Chair: Professor Christopher Coker
Date: Thursday 11 February 2016, 5.00-6.30pm
Venue: Clement House, Room 7.02
This lecture will present a new history and theory of counterinsurgency with major implications for social, political and international thought.
Retrieving the older but surprisingly neglected language of household governance, she will show how the techniques and domestic ideologies of household administration are highly portable and play a remarkably central role in international and imperial relations.
