The version of my book talk delivered at the School of Oriental and African Studies, 16 February 2011.
I didn’t want to just do a straight-up book talk on the Conduct of Inquiry book at the ISA-Northeast conference, so we did something a little different: Dan Green gave an overview of the book’s argument, I said a few things about my aims and intentions, and then we had a lot of q&a time. I think the result is a pretty good articulation of some my hopes for the book and for the field of IR.

Discussant comments made during the book launch and discussion for Barry Buzan and Amitav Acharya’s edited book Non-Western International Relations Theory, American University, 3 May 2010. Both editors made remarks before my comments, but as usual I didn’t record those since I didn’t have their permission to do so.
Shorter book talk, delivered as part of the University of Florida’s workshop on “Epistemology and Method in International Relations.” Not crazy about the workshop title — none of the participants were! — but it was a wonderful workshop all the same.
The Conduct of Inquiry in International Relations, round two: a talk delivered at Lehigh University on 24 February 2010, to an audience mainly consisting of undergraduate students. Basically the same slides as the USC talk, but different audiences produce different emphases and an overall distinctive tone.
Here is the live performance of my not-a-classic-of-philosophical-drama dialogue “Two Philosophers Shoveling Snow,” an earlier version of which was posted over at The Duck a few days ago. The attached file is the slides from which Benjamin Herborth and I read the dialogue during a roundtable on critical realism at the 2010 ISA annual meeting. I took the part of “Roy” the critical realist, and gave Benjamin the part of “Will” the pragmatist — and he started his subsequent presentation by announcing that he was not Will. Obviously I’m not Roy, either.
