Introduction: Making the Case for Re-imagination
The introduction delineates the questions and research strategies to a project focused on promoting an encounter between narratives about/from the Maghreb and narratives from/about International Relations (IR) and International Relations theory in their attempts at making sense of the world of international and global affairs. What does this attention to the tropes of narrative, voice, and reflexivity as theoretical problems entail to the study of global affairs? What sorts of anxieties and hopes do the turn to narratives both as modes of communicating knowledge to the world and as modes of knowing, (re-)imagining, and thus (re)telling the world bring about in the field of IR?
