Owen Brown is a PhD candidate in Political Science at Northwestern University. He holds an Hons. BA in international relations from the University of Toronto, as well as a joint MA in international relations from the Free University of Berlin, the Humboldt University of Berlin, and the University of Potsdam. Owen’s research centres on the intersections between race, colonialism, and international politics, and his dissertation examines how race and international order are co-constituted through discourse and practice across the spheres of international law, political economy, and security. More broadly, his research interests cut across the fields of international relations, postcolonial and critical race studies, political and social theory, as well as history. Owen has also been interested in alternative ways of communicating and sharing research with audiences out of academia since being a part of a research and exhibition project titled "Manufacturing Race" on the colonial past and present of the site where the Free University of Berlin is located when he was a student there.
