On this episode, we speak to Dr Matthew Leep. Matthew is a scholar of international relations, a poet, and a senior instructor in Politics at Western Governors University in the United States. Much of his recent work has been about new ways of writing in international relations, looking at how – for example – poetry, text fragments, sounds, and images can help us explore interspecies relations. Today, we talk about his book Cosmopolitan Belongingness and War: Animals, Loss, and Spectral-Poetic Moments. This was published by SUNY University Press in 2021.
