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.
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.
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.
The q and a following my 16 February 2011 talk at SOAS.
The version of my book talk delivered at the School of Oriental and African Studies, 16 February 2011.
Even though some of the questions are hard to hear on this recording, here is the discussion that followed my talk at the University of Minnesota on 3 February 2011.
The first stop in the C of I book tour: University of Minnesota, 3 February 2011. As a result of the subsequent discussion I modified the end of the talk for future editions; I will post the new slides when I post the next version of the book talk, which will be delivered at SOAS in London next week.
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.
