Here are the two documents I mentioned in class tonight:

interpretive research proposal outline

SIS-680 supplemental slides #1

May 21st, 2009 | Posted by ptj in SIS-680 - (0 Comments)

Here are the slides-plus-audio of my brief in-class presentation today in which I outlined the potential next steps that might follow in the development of a comparative study of how people’s research interests are linked to their academic program.

SIS-680 first assignment

May 21st, 2009 | Posted by ptj in SIS-680 - (0 Comments)

Here’s the outline for the first assignment for SIS-680: a partial proposal for a piece of comparative case study research. “Partial” because I am not asking you for either a literature summary or a literature critique.

SIS-680 introductory lecture

May 12th, 2009 | Posted by ptj in SIS-680 - (0 Comments)

The 2009 edition of the introductory lecture for my SIS-680 course. Something of a remix from last year’s version, and also features a corect synching of the audio and the slides (I think).

SIS-680 syllabus

May 12th, 2009 | Posted by ptj in SIS-680 - (0 Comments)

Here’s the Summer 2009 edition of the SIS-680 “‘Qualitative’ Research Methodologies” syllabus. I still dislike — as in “abhor” — the category “qualitative,” but that’s what I’m stuck with for the moment.

Here’s the talk I delivered yesterday at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University. This is a remix of the civilizations talk I have previously given at GW and Rutgers; this version/performance is more about the configuration of social-scientific disciplinary knowledge than previous versions was, because that’s where my brain is at the moment.

lecturelet 13

May 4th, 2009 | Posted by ptj in SIS-301 - (0 Comments)

The final lecturelet for SIS-301; this one’s about Naeem Inayatullah and David Blaney’s book International Relations and the Problem of Difference.

Naeem and David actually have spoken about their approach at a workshop I organized, and a recording of those remarks is available here.

Here’s another performance or rendition of my basic talk about the University College program. This is the early show from the second Freshman Day, and like the previous version it also includes the q&a session that immediately followed the presentation.

As usual, this is an “enhanced podcast” .m4a file, so you’ll need to download it and play it in iTunes or QuickTime Player.

lecturelet 12

April 20th, 2009 | Posted by ptj in SIS-301 - (0 Comments)

Almost the end of the series! Here’s lecturelet 12, which is somewhat about feminism and somewhat about the broader critical-theoretical tradition that it is part of, at least or especially in IR.

My subjective perception was that I talked a bit fast on a couple of these slides. Fortunately, QuickTime has options that you can use to slow down playback, if that’s necessary.

Here’s a recording — the standard .m4a slides-plus-audio format — of my informational presentation to prospective AU students and their families about the University College program, 17 April 2009 at about 1:15pm. I recorded the q&a that followed the presentation, too; some of the questions are hard to hear, but I tried to remember to repeat the question before I answered it.

This is about an hour long, and I recommend listening to it in iTunes or QuickTime Player, as with most of my podcast channels.
