The Duck of Minerva

The Duck Quacks at Twilight

Ducks in London

February 21, 2011

Dan and I spent the last few days in London doing a variety of talks that might be of some interest to the general Duck readership.

On Wednesday I gave a book talk at SOAS; I’m quite pleased at the way this one turned out. Podcast here; q and a here. And the sci-fi author part of the session is available to listen to here.

On Thursday Dan and I participated in the LSE’s Literary Festival on a pair of roundtables entitled “Science Fiction an International orders.” Liveblog by Stephanie (as most of you probably already know) here; my contribution podcast here; Dan’s contribution here.

On Friday Dan and I did a joint talk at the LSE entitled “Conducting Inquiry in IR,” which ran the gamut from philosophy of science to techniques for relational social inquiry. The talk is here; the q and a is here.

All in all, a very ducky few days in grey and chilly England.
