Some ruminations about “science” in a world in which facts and factuality per se seem under siege. Lecture at the University of Oslo, 4 May 2017. Slides here.
Audio (and slides, here) from a talk delivered at the University of Tampere, Finland, 8 October 2015. An audience of graduate students working on their MA degrees, for the most part.
Ten years after founding the ISA-NE graduate student workshop on interpretive and relational research methodology, and having handed it off to others a couple of years ago, I was, for the first time, a regular participant this past year. Here’s what I had to say; accompanying slides here.
A talk given on a panel at ISA-Northeast, 7 November 2014.
“Must International Studies be a Science?” 17 October 2014. This was the opening keynote talk from the 2014 Millennium journal annual conference. Slides here. A print version of this talk is forthcoming in the journal, and caveat auditor: since we spent the next two days at the conference discussing the themes that I raised in this talk, the forthcoming print version has some differences from this live version, especially in the conclusion. (Although I am still not a fan of blending.)
“International Studies: the emerging global inter-discipline,” delivered 16 October 2014. Slides here.
In August 2014 I was privileged to deliver a “lecciÃ³n inaugural” at Pontifica Universidad Javierna in Bogota, Colombia. Here is the audio recording, and here are the slides from which I spoke.
Here is the audio — and here are the slides — from my 1 April lecture on Robert Heinlein’s novel Stranger In A Strange Land. The lecture was part of the “Books That Shaped America” series, co-sponsored by American University’s School of Professional and Extended Studies and the AU Library.
I am informed that there will be a video recording available through the AU website at some point as well, if anyone is interested.
Here’s the audio and slides from my keynote presentation at this morning’s AACP Institute on teaching, in which I speculate about the future of higher education and suggest that we have to pay more attention to what we are using the classroom space to accomplish. The audio is raw and unedited, but a same-day podcast is often not the world’s greatest production quality!
