As the year ends, the Department of International Relations and Governance Studies is glad to announce Prof. Siddharth Mallavarapu's recent research, published with the world's leading presses, journals, and platforms.
On 30 November, 2020 Prof.Siddharth Mallavarapu was invited for a presentation at Goethe University, Frankfurt to speak about ‘Imperialism, International Law and War: Enduring Legacies and Curious Entanglements’ based on a forthcoming chapter in a co-edited volume by Lothar Brock and Hendrik Smith titled The Justification of War and International Order: From Past to Present to be published in early 2021 by Oxford University Press. The presentation also dwelt on the histories and analytics of TWAIL (Third World Approaches to International Law). Earlier this year, a contribution of Prof.Mallavarapu appeared in the Cambridge University Press journal, Global Constitutionalism ((Vol.9, No.2:424-436) and a review article on the state of play of theoretical scholarship in Chinese International Relations appeared in the Sage journal, China Report (Vol.56, No.1:129-138). Finally, the International History and Politics (IHAP) section of the American Political Science Association (APSA) in their Fall 2020 Issue (Vol.6, Issue 2:15-18) did a roundtable on ‘Race, Indigeneity and the Global South – Missed Opportunities and Possible Futures’. Prof.Mallavarapu contributed a piece titled ‘The Pendulum Swings: Tethering Histories and Futures of the United Nations’ which found special mention in the ‘Message from the President’ by Stacie Goddard of the IHAP-APSA.
