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 “lección 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.
My comments on a roundtable on “Constructivism and Psychology” at the 2014 ISA meeting, 26 March 2014. Recorded straight to iPhone, and presented here in .m4a format.
This isn’t actually the title I gave for the talk at the time, and this isn’t the first time I gave the talk — I had given previous versions of it at Oxford and Aberystwyth over the past week too. but I think this is the best version, and I also think that this title captures much better what I am actually talking about. So it will probably be the title of the article or chapter I end up writing. Eventually. In the meantime, here are some slides, and here’s the audio of the talk.
