Nominations (and voting registrations) are really starting to come in. I’ve updated the most recent post to reflect yesterday’s additions.
- Leslie Dwyer: “After Aceh’s Peace.”
PeoplePolicy is out with its “Top 100 Global Policy CelebsThinkers” list, so I suppose we now have to slavishly dissect it. Or, we could read Audrey Waters’ “top 100 reasons why I hate lists” (which isn’t super-relevant, but whatever…)
- BLTN: The Disorder of Things had a symposium on open-access journals in the social sciences. Pablo K., Colin Wight, David Mainwaring, Nivi Manchanda, Nathan Coombs, and Meera each contributed.
- Henry Farrell announces upcoming seminars at Crooked Timber, including ones on two of my favorite SF/F authors: Ken Macleod and Felix Gilman. I believe that the Duck is still anticipating a Hydrogen Sonata symposium, but I don’t want to jinx that.
- Former Duck blogger Bill Petti is involved with a new television show, The Ballpark Factor.
- Two posts at LGM: SEK looks at Peanuts strips from the summer of 1968, and a guest post by Jonathan Powell about the DRC and M23.
- Brad Delong et al. discuss national, transnational, and global inequality.
- Gerard Toal emailed me a call for abstracts (PDF) for a special issue of Annals of the Association of American Geographers. The subject: “Imagining Soci0-Ecological Transformations.” And it overlaps with PM’s and my “Exotic IR” project. Which only goes to show how far IR lags behind geography.
