An Oxford Excursion for the International Relations Major

The International Relations major class walked along the Thames Path to visit St. Mary’s Church in Iffley, a 12th-century church that is one of the best-preserved examples of Norman architecture in England. This was the setting for a discussion on how power and authority has changed over the past millennium, especially on the meaning of ‘sovereignty’ and the origins of the modern state system. Afterwards, the class also stopped at a nearby hotel café for some snacks and drinks before the walk back into the city centre.
