Bogota talk 2014

January 15th, 2015 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ - (0 Comments)

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.

Stranger In A Strange Land

April 3rd, 2014 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ - (0 Comments)

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 is the slide I reference in my ISA roundtable presentation on causality.

ISA 2014: causality

April 2nd, 2014 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ's Podcasts - (0 Comments)

My comments on a roundtable on causality, in the last panel session of ISA 2014. These are the rough version of a paper I will be presenting in a more refined mix at BISA in June of this year.

The slide I reference will be posted here shortly.

My comments on a roundtable organized by Andy Hom at ISA 2014, entitled “A Bridge Too Far? Caution in Theory Along the Border of the Academy.” The topic here is the relationship of scholarship and policy work, so to speak. Shortly before making these comments, I tweeted: “Francois Debrix stealing my Weberian thunder at #isa2014 roundtable on ‘scholarly caution.’ Guess I have to think of something else to say.” You will have to judge for yourself whether I succeeded.

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.

AACP Institute 2013

May 20th, 2013 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ - (0 Comments)

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!

Whither constructivism?

BISA/ISA 2012 — fear of relativism

September 30th, 2012 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ's Podcasts - (0 Comments)

Recording of my remarks on a panel on pluralism and diversity in international studies, BISA/ISA joint meeting, Edinburgh, 20 June 2012. A written version of these remarks, featuring the addition of a Star Wars-themed example, appeared here, and I suspect that there will be another version someplace else before too long.
