Georgetown students and faculty will be best positioned to lead in global affairs when they have engaged with the wide and diverse perspectives and identities that underpin our international societies. In 2016, the Mortara Center for International Studies at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service launched the Remapping IR Initiative, which was intended to start this conversation. The initiative exposes students to cutting-edge approaches, and alternative voices, considering conceptions of power, states, and the international system. The goal of the initiative is to bring neglected groups and narratives into mainstream research on international politics. In addition to making this initiative a permanent feature in Mortara’s annual discourse, the center aims to complement its impact by creating semester-long master classes or pro-seminars led by faculty members as well as national conferences devoted to these subjects. These seminars and conferences will meaningfully encourage students to broaden their intellectual perspectives and engage in research and dialogue on the importance of considering orientation, sexuality, gender, social stratification and race when analyzing international politics, policy, and research.
