Curriculum Vitae

Global Political Economy, International Political Theory

Professor Blaney works on the social and political theory of international relations/global political economy.  He explores the constructions of identity, time and space central to the discipline of international relations. His first book, co-authored with Naeem Inayatullah, International Relations and the Problem of Difference (Routledge, 2004), examines the way early modern social and political thought structures a spatial and temporal imagination—revolving around notions of sovereignty and development—that makes international relations as a discipline possible.  His second book, also with Naeem, Savage Economics: Wealth, Poverty and the Temporal Walls of Capitalism (Routledge, 2010), centers on 18th-  and 19th-century political economic thought; it explores the links between our received understandings of wealth and poverty and the ethical impoverishment of much of contemporary thought about capitalism.  He is currently working on two edited books that explore the state of international relations as a global discipline.  He serves on the editorial board of the Routledge Press series, “Worlding Beyond the West,” and the Iranian Review of Foreign Affairs. Professor Blaney teaches courses on international relations, global political economy, development, political economic thought, and global citizenship.
