Professor Jutta Weldes (University of Bristol) will deliver the Annual Politics and International Relations Undergraduate Lecture on 'Constructing world politics, or: How I learned to recognise the importance of popular culture'.
Jutta is Professor of International Relations at the University of Bristol. She has helped shape our understanding of how priorities and perceptions of world politics are constructed in the diverse relations between popular culture and politics.
She is the author of 'Constructing National Interests: The United States and the Cuban Missile Crisis' (Minnesota, 1999) and co-editor of 'Cultures of Insecurity: States, Communities, and the Production of Danger' (Minnesota, 1999). She has also published 'Going Cultural: Star Trek, State Action, and Popular Culture' (Millennium, 1999) and 'Globalization is Science Fiction' (Millennium, 2001), as well as numerous other articles and book chapters on international relations theory, popular culture and US foreign policy.
