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.

Here’s a talk I gave at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) on 25 May. Topic: Weberian methodology.

NSSR: Towards Global IR

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.

Together with my colleague Celine-Marie Pascalefrom AU’s Sociology Department, here’s a talk delivered in AU’s School of Public Affairs’ research seminar series, 30 March 2011. Celine-Marie’s book Cartographies of Knowledge is a really great critical overview of how many of the same issues I wrestle with in The Conduct of Inquiry in International Relations play out in Sociology.

My comments on a roundtable entitled “Why Is International Relations Decreasingly An American Social Science?” at the Montreal ISA meeting, 16 March 2011.

Sermon delivered at the Montreal International Studies Association meeting, 18 March 2011. Lower audio quality than usual because I recorded this straight to my iPad instead of recording it to another digital voice recorder.

Also, public mea culpa to Hans-Martin Jaeger, who didn’t actually say that feminism wasn’t a constructivism, but did say that he was not going to discuss feminism in his presentation.

The q and a that followed Dan and my joint presentation at the LSE, 18 February 2011. I think we got to five questions in 35 minutes, with answers to the first three questions consuming the bulk of that time.

Here’s a first: a two-part joint presentation by Dan and me, with a division of labor spanning the gap between philosophical and scientific ontology. We haven’t done this kind of show in a while, and it was great fun! London School of Economics, 18 February 2011. And don’t miss the epic q and a that followed the talk.

Dan Nexon’s contribution to the afternoon roundtables on “Science Fiction and International Orders,” part of the London School of Economics’ annual Literary Festival, 17 February 2011. My contribution is here. Note that there was also a contribution by Iver Neumann, but he declined to be recorded; note also that I did not record the ensuing q and a. You’ll need Stephanie Carvin’s excellent live blog from the event to get a sense of what happened after we three were done speaking. And in principle, there should be an LSE recording of the earlier session, but I am not sure where that will be posted …
