Accepting New Graduate Students


Elizabeth Dauphinee teaches in the field of international relations. She researches and writes on ethics, narrative methodologies, and conflict.

Elizabeth Dauphinee is an international relations theorist who employs narrative methods to uncover those aspects of sociopolitical experience that resist depiction in traditional academic literature. She is particularly interested in how narratives recuperate the complexity and ambivalence of life as it is actually lived – in tension, in contradiction, and in compromise. Dauphinee’s work is motivated by the desire to overcome the binary simplicities that solidify ‘identities’ in war and that therefore result in superficial, unreflexive approaches to understanding how war is experienced by those caught in its logics.

More...

Elizabeth Dauphinee is the author of The Politics of Exile (Routledge, 2013) and The Ethics of Researching War (Manchester University Press, 2007). She is also the founding editor of the Journal of Narrative Politics. She is co-editor (with Naeem Inayatullah) of Narrative Global Politics (Routledge, 2016). Her research has appeared in International Political Sociology, Peacebuilding, Critical Studies on Security, Security Dialogue, Dialectical Anthropology, Millennium: Journal of International Studies, and Review of International Studies. She is interested in a wide range of critical approaches to IR theory, and has supervised students working in areas ranging from contemporary visual culture to Islamic philosophy. She teaches and researches in the field of narrative, affect, and autoethnography. She welcomes contact from students and colleagues working in these or tangential areas.
