World Politics 2007 podcast #2: liberalism

September 18th, 2007 | Posted by ptj in SIS-105 - (1 Comments)

The second course podcast for the 2007 edition of my World Politics course. The topic is “liberalism,” which
is fortunate, considering the name of the podcast.


World Politics 2007 podcast #1: realism

September 8th, 2007 | Posted by ptj in SIS-105 - (0 Comments)

Here is the first of four podcasts for the 2007 edition of World Politics with PTJ. This one deals with “realism” as it relates to international relations.

You might want to click on “About RSS feeds” to the left and learn how to subscribe to the feed for this course; that way anything I upload will automagically end up on your hard drive, plugged into iTunes for your viewing and listening pleasure. (The file is an “enhanced podcast” (.m4b) file, so you’l need either iTunes or the QuickTime player in order to play it properly. Fortunately, both are free downloads.)


Challenges lecturelet

October 2nd, 2006 | Posted by ptj in SIS-105 - (0 Comments)

The fourth in my series of lecturelets for World Politics. This one introduces more radical challenges to the whole enterprise of IR theory as we have been investigating it thus far.


Constructivism lecturelet

September 25th, 2006 | Posted by ptj in SIS-105 - (0 Comments)

Here it is. (Although, at 47 minutes, I wonder if it should just be a “lecture” rather than a “lecturelet.” There was just more to say about constructivism, since it’s a somewhat more complicated theory of world politics, so bear with me.)


Liberalism lecturelet

Here’s the second short lecture, on liberal IR theory.


Realism lecturelet

A few words about “realism,” the first of the IR theoretical perspectives that we will be looking at this semester. You’ll need either iTunes or QuickTime Player to play the podcast properly; there is a video component, so make sure that you have the proper window open on your player once you download the file.
