Heloise Weber’s research is animated by an interest in the historical and contemporary politics of inequalities and injustices in the organization of development globally. She approaches question over development from a critical perspective, which considers ‘the international’ as a product of development, and the development we experience as advanced crucially also through the ‘international’. Her research addresses how knowledge-production and representation shape and justify framings of ‘development’ at a macro-political level, and what this means for people implicated in them. A correlate of this is her interest in struggles against such schemes, and for ‘development otherwise’. The conceptual and theoretical concerns raised in this context form the basis of her interest in the politics of method and methodological choices, notably with regard to social science staples such as the (formal) comparative method, and its consequences. Her theoretical and analytical approaches are informed by a critical interest in colonialism and its legacies, and post-colonial and decolonial thought and politics. She is also interested in how such insights can contribute to contemporary critical revisions of global public political histories.
