EISA Portfolio: Mid-Career Development
Felix Berenskötter is Head of Department, Politics and International Studies at SOAS University of London. He holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and specializes in international theory; concepts of friendship, identity, power, security, space and time; with an empirical focus on questions of European security, German foreign policy and transatlantic relations. Felix has published widely on these topics and is currently working on a monograph on friendship and estrangement in international relations. In past roles as editor of academic journals (JoGSS, Millennium) and chair of sections at ISA and BISA, he has worked to broaden conversations about how we study world politics, with a particular focus on theoretical and interpretive approaches. As a member of EISA's governing board, Felix aims to strengthen the Association as a critical forum for exploring how knowledge produced in Europe has been, and should be, interacting with knowledge produced in other parts of the world.
