The first posting of some of the audio from this weekend’s ISA-Northeast conference is up over on my syndication site. This one is from a panel called “Whither Constructivism?” featuring Nick Onuf, Mike Barnett, and me, chaired by Sammy Barkin. I’ll get the audio from the methodology workshop up in the next couple of days, and Dan has the audio from our “science fiction and IR pedagogy” panel because my recorder crapped out and didn’t record it properly.

The comments I make here are going to form the foundation of something I hope to write and post shortly, defending my position that sharp conceptual distinctions are better for the field than fuzzy labels referring to diffuse aggregates are. Consider this a rough draft.
