The Doing IPS research hub is a network bringing together scholars working in the broad area of International Political Sociology across Europe and Brazil. IPS is understood as a field of research that fosters transdisciplinary encounters and critical analysis of the contemporary transformations of the multiple social and political orders. We therefore emphasize the need to understand political processes in their socio-historical context and welcome the engagement with feminist, sociological and historical theories as well as human geography, political theory, and digital humanities. We are interested in challenging dominant modes of knowledge production and offering a platform where concepts, methodologies, and future lines of research are shaped, including novel approaches to critical research. This working group aims specifically at establishing collaborations across national and institutional boundaries to contribute to the future shaping of the burgeoning research field of IPS. To that end, it organises a set of events that are either stand-alone workshops to boost certain research agendas (such as this workshop), local research seminar series, and sections or panels that are part of larger conferences such as the EISA Pan-European conference.


Instead of starting from a general reflection,  speakers briefly – 7 to 10 minutes each – formulate a question that drives their research and explain how the question and their approach to it engages conceptions of the social, political and international and the relation between them. The short presentations are followed by a general discussion in which participants in the workshop are asked to reflect on differences and similarities in how they research the social, political and international and what they consider to be distinctively IPS about it.
