York University, Keele Campus
Canadian security/(in)security and defense in theory and practice has been
challenged, re-defined and re-imagined in the changing political and
theoretical global environment in the last decade. These shifts require a
dialogue on recent turns in the field and innovative and multidisciplinary
approaches that call into question traditional understandings of security.
These challenges have been taken up by growing numbers of scholars within
Canada indicating that we may have reached the point at which a
distinctive Canadian voice in security studies may be emerging.
This roundtable discussion brings together distinguished scholars and
practitioners working in the area of Critical Security Studies to discuss
new approaches, critiques of existing approaches and future directions for
the field, both theoretically and regarding the practical development of
this area of research.
The panel features:
David Mutimer, Deputy Director, York Centre for International and Security
Studies, York University
Barbara Falk, Department of Defence Studies, Canadian Forces College
Mark Salter, School of Political Studies, University of Ottawa
