SIS-680, lecture two

May 19th, 2008 | Posted by ptj in SIS-680 - (0 Comments)

Here’s the second lecture for SIS-680. This one’s on comparative case study methodology. Yes, it’s a long one. I suspect that most of the 680 podcasts will be long ones.

SIS-680, lecture one

Here’s the introductory lecture from SIS-680, Summer 2008. Note that I accidentally removed some of the slide transitions so some of the visuals don’t track to the audio quite right, but you should get the basic idea. Also, note that this is a big file, about 60mb — that’s what happen when the lecture is an hour and thirty-eight minutes long! (The others will be shorter, I swear.)

How to talk about the future

Here’s a talk I gave to the Phi Beta Kappa induction dinner at American University, 7 May 2008.

Note that I actually forgot to make the point I was planning to make about Battlestar Galactica: the show is effectively serving as a speculative world take on “alien-ness” by continually blurring the human/Cylon boundary. (That will make more sense after you listen to the podcast.)

Note that if you download this instead of playing it in the pop-up player, you get navigation menus — and a bigger image.

Here’s a talk giving a general overview of the Learning Communities Project at American University.

Here’s a talk about a book I’m working on at the moment — a book on the philosophy of science and its implications for empirical research in IR. Delivered to the Ph.D. seminar at the School of International Service, American University, 4 April 2008. This is enhanced .m4a, so it has slides and you’ll need iTunes or QuickTime Player to view it.
