I am recruiting two postdoctoral researchers to join my project ARTEFACT and the newly established Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (GloKnoS), which will be hosted by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) at the University of Cambridge as of March 2018.
Both positions are for 3 years, starting anytime between 1 September 2018 (preferred) and 1 February 2019. The deadline for application is 9 March 2018, and interviews of shortlisted candidates are scheduled for 24 April.
All the details about the two posts and the application procedure are available through this link. For direct access to the full description and requirements of the posts, see PDRA1 and PDRA2.
A shorter and updated version of a paper I first prepared for the 54th Annual Convention of the International Studies Association in 2013 is now forthcoming (2018) in Current Sociology: The ‘Vocation’ Redux: A Post-Weberian Perspective from the Sociology of Knowledge. Available here.
Berit Bliesemann de Guevara and I are convening Section 18 on Global Epistemics, at the 12th Pan-European Conference on International Relations organised by the European International Studies Association from 12 to 15 September 2018 in Prague. The Section is sponsored by our respective research centres, the Centre for the International Politics of Knowledge (KNOWLEDGE) and the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (GloKnoS).
Abstract copied below, and more information on the conference can be found here.
Andreas Gofas, Nicholas Onuf, and I have just submitted our Handbook of the History, Philosophy and Sociology of International Relations, coming out with SAGE in August 2018. We started this project in the summer of 2014 and are very happy to see it completed, with a fantastic set of contributors. The table of contents and chapter abstracts are available here.
I’m thrilled to be joining Interdisciplinary Science Reviews as Advisory Editor, and look forward to working with Editor Willard McCarty and ISR‘s editorial team.
Morton A. Kaplan passed away two months ago. His friendship was a blessing and a privilege, and I shall miss him tremendously. I’m grateful to Gordon Anderson for the opportunity to contribute to a tribute coming out next month in International Journal on World Peace:
Much love, Mort.
