Along with authors Nisha Shah, Miguel de Larrinaga, Srdjan Vucetic, and David Grondin, Mark Salter will present Making Things International 1: Circuits and Motion — a book that surveys how different things make the international realm – from examples of secrets, tear gas, passports, F-35s, blood, cell-phones, and others. Building on recent debates in critical social theory and international relations, the book presents twenty-five essays that engage the global, the local, and the international through the lens of objects. It represents the first substantial new materialist intervention in global politics and international relations, offering a diverse and provocative set of reflections on how different objects create, sustain, complicate, and trouble the international.
Mark B. Salter is editor of Making Things International 1, and full professor at the School of Political Studies. He is winner of the 2014 Canadian Political Science Association Prize for Excellence in Teaching. Salter is also associate editor of International Political Sociology and Security Dialogue.
