Here’s the fourth podcast for SIS-105. This one’s on the limitations of IR theory and the potential for more radical challenges to state-centric ways of thinking about world politics and international relations. The podcast also spends some time trying to helpfully order the various forms of IR theory that we’ve considered thus far. Apologies for the way that the sound gets a bit iffy from time to time; I have to remember to push the microphone away when I get going.

World Politics 2010 podcast #3: constructivism

September 16th, 2010 | Posted by ptj in SIS-105 - (0 Comments)

Here’s the third podcast lecture for World Politics for Fall 2010. This one’s on constructivism, and the role of identity and notions of community in world politics.

Here are my comments delivered as part of a roundtable on the question “What does it mean to be critical?” Fantastic panel; I’m only sad that I didn’t leave the recorder running so as to capture the other presentations and the rest of the ensuing discussion. Next time, perhaps.

SGIR 2010, popular culture panel

September 15th, 2010 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ - (0 Comments)

Since I was afflicted by unaccustomed jet lag during the first day of the SGIR conference last week, I did not record my comments on the pop culture panel, anticipating that they’d be somewhat rambly and opaque. But since I was presenting my Battlestar Galactica paper, and since the paper is almost unchanged from when I presented it at ISA earlier this year, interested parties can go here and listen to my comments from a few months ago.
