PSA: IR Theory Resource

. Tuesday, August 18, 2009

The other day I stumbled across Theory Talks, a blog run by a Peer Schouten, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Gothenburg. In the words of its proprietor, Theory Talks "is an interactive forum for discussion of debates in International Relations with an emphasis on the underlying theoretical issues. By frequently inviting cutting-edge specialists in the field to elucidate their work and to explain current developments both in IR theory and real-world politics, Theory Talks aims to offer both scholars and students a comprehensive view of the field and its most important protagonists."

In other words, the site interviews prominent IR figures and focuses on the theoretical aspects of their work, controversies and debates in the discipline, and how to move the discipline forward. So far there have been several dozen of these, including talks with Wendt, Katzenstein, Nye, Keohane, and many others. It's a nice resource.
