is an inter-disciplinary course that will address the crises faced by conventional disciplines in addressing the problem of change. The collapse of a bipolar world in the 1990s meant a gradual disappearance of the image of man and its doubles in which the social sciences and humanities discussed its mainstreams of knowledge. Disciplines like Political Science and Sociology have come to be challenged by more indigenous terms with respect to access to economic resources, political power, prestige etc. The dismantling of ideology from the understanding of Social Sciences has made it imminent for all disciplines to reflect on sources of non-European forms of politics.
