“Dealing with the East: Orientalism and the Ideas of Eurasia in Contemporary Geopolitics”
In this talk, I mobilize Edward Said’s critique of Orientalism (1978) as a Europrean “style of thought,” a “corporate institution” and a “systematic discipline” that produces, manages and deals with the “Orient” by means of discourse to think about the idea of “Eurasia” and its uses in contemporary geopolitics.
