Entitled “The Accidental Theorist”, the discussion will explore how creative writing is currently changing the scholarly landscape of academic international relations.

Dauphinee will talk about the catalysts that led her to write her first novel, The Politics of Exile, and about how both theory and politics converge in everyday encournters.

Dauphinee joined the Department of Political Science at York U in 2008. She earned a PhD at York in 2005, with a diploma in International and Security Studies. Her research interests involve ethics and international relations theory, autoethnographic approaches, and narrative forms of writing international relations.

She is also interested in how the experience of emotion shapes knowledge.
