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.
Here’s a talk I gave at the University of Southern California on 10 January, in which I took up the question of how to make the field of IR safe for the world — I identified at least three conceptual/theoretical/methodological/vocational boundaries that need to be loosened en route to making the study of world politics better able to meet the “terrible predicament of here and now” (as I quote Heschel at the end of my C of I book).
The talk was recorded direct to iPad in mono so the audio quality is a bit lower; I also walked away from the machine a few times to gesticulate at the displayed image, so the effective volume varies a bit. Also, near the end of the talk someone in the next room started showing a movie with the volume turned way WAY up, so there’s some bleed-through of that audio in this recording.
PDF images of the slides for the talk are here.
The q and a following my 14 June 2011 talk at Koc University. My favorite bit here is when I am asked how I would design a Ph.D. program in IR; I’m fond of my answer, and if anyone has a few spare million dollars or euros lying around and wants to start up a new program, let me know.

Here are the slides from my talk at CAST, 27 May 2011.

Another talk based on my Conduct of Inquiry book. This one — a particularly good one, I’d say — was held at the Center for Advanced Security Theory (CAST) at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, 27 May 2011.
I was invited to participate in the keynote panel for a graduate student conference entitled “Amplification and Resistance: Introducing the Politics of the Globe” (more information here) at the New School for Social Research in New York City. Here’s what I said.
Note that the slides I reference in the talk can be seen here.
