EITM Europe 2017

I am pleased to announce that I will be joining this year’s EITM Europe Summer Institute faculty and will be teaching a course on “(Mixed) Methods in International Relations: Theory and Applications.” The summer school will take place at the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Turin from June 24 – July 8, 2017. The two week program offers four core courses on:

  • Statistical Foundations of EITM (James Lo, USC)
  • Theoretical Foundations of EITM (Thomas Bräuninger, Mannheim)
  • Bayesian Nets (Macartan Humphreys, Columbia and WZB)
  • and my course on (Mixed) Methods in International Relations.

Ian Duncan visits UofG

It was a great pleasure to host Ian Duncan, MEP, as part of my Global Environmental Politics class to talk to students about the Politics of Climate Change. Ian has been Member of the European Parliament since May 2014, serves on the Parliament’s Environment Committee, and is the Conservative Spokesperson for energy and climate change in the EP. His inspiring talk emphasized the importance of distributional consequences, how difficult the transition to a low-carbon economy is, and why people are not ready (yet?) for emissions trading to work. Everyone felt extremely pleased to have Ian join us!

Global Environmental Politics Class

Today, I started teaching my Global Environmental Politics class at the University of Glasgow, for 3rd/4th year undergraduate students. My syllabus is available here and from the Teaching tab. I took great inspiration from a recent threat on teaching environmental politics from The Duck of Minerva blog. The original posts and a compilation of course guides can be found here.

Back to School…

The semester at WashU just started yesterday, and I’m happy to teach a class on International Political Economy titled “Topics in International Politics: Politics, Firms, and Markets.” I am excited about this opportunity to teach what seems to become a very interesting class. The syllabus can be found on my website under the Teaching tab.
