Mustapha Kamal Pasha took up the chair in International Politics at Aberystwyth University in 2013, having been Sixth Century Chair and Head of International Relations at the University of Aberdeen since January 2006 and taught previously at the School of International Service, American University in Washington, DC. Mustapha served as Vice President of the International Studies Association in 2012-2013. His work is broadly located within Post-Western IR and draws from varied genealogies, notably decolonial thought, postcolonialism, poststructuralism, critical theory, and classical political economy (influenced by Hegel, Marx, Gramsci, and Subaltern Studies). His most recent book, International Relations and Islam: Fractured Worlds (Routledge) will be published in May 2017.
