This talk introduces the concept of cosmologies. Cosmologies challenge hegemonic iterations of geo-cultural difference in IR by interrogating the relationship between territory, culture and difference; the ‘religious’ and the ‘secular;’ and humans and the environment. The speaker suggests that ‘post-western IR’ should focus on inter-cosmological relations in a pluriverse.
