Dr Alister Wedderburn
- Lecturer (Politics)
I received my PhD in International Relations from King's College London in 2017. Between 2017 and 2019 I was the John Vincent Postdoctoral Research Fellow in International Relations at the Australian National University in Canberra. I joined the University of Glasgow in January 2020 as a Lecturer in International Relations.
My research interests include:
- Critical and post-structuralist IR theories
- The global politics of visual, literary and popular cultures
- The global politics of the everyday
My published work focuses on a diverse range of sites and issues related to these interests. My articles have appeared in journals including International Studies Quarterly, European Journal of International Relations, Review of International Studies, Millennium: Journal of International Studies and the International Feminist Journal of Politics. My first book, titled Humour, Subjectivity, and World Politics was published in 2021 with Manchester University Press.
