World Political Compositions begins in earnest with a workshop taking placed in San Francisco on the 3rd of April 2018, as a side-event of the 2018 International Studies Association meeting. The workshop brings together a leading and eclectic group of scholars who will explore their own use of the concept of composition.

Participants include Jonathan Luke Austin, Rocco Bellanova, Roland Bleiker, Charmaine Chua, Charlotte Epstein, Penny Von Eschen, Gloria Gonzalez Fuster, Kevin Gaines, Aida Hozic, Naeem Inayatullah, Anna Leander, L. H. M. Ling, Stephanie Perazzone, Delf Rothe, Rune Saugmann, Michael J. Shapiro, Benjamin Tallis, Ana Clara Telles, and Elspeth Van Veeren.

The workshop will take place in an old photographic studio in the historic centre of San Francisco, and include both traditional paper presentations, multi-media presentations, photography exhibits, and film screenings.

Segments of the workshop will be open to a public audience, as well as public participation. As we have limited space available for this purpose, those interested in attending are encouraged to register as soon as is possible.
