ISA 2019 Conference in Toronto

March 25, 2019

ISA 2019From 27 through 30 March 2019 I will be participating in the 60th Annual Conference of the International Studies Association in Toronto. Together with Tracey Blasenheim (University of Minnesota), I organize a panel on the blurry boundaries of war ("War by other means?", WA24). In the context of this panel, I will present a paper on the relationship between diplomacy and warfare. In addition, together with Christopher Daase (Goethe University Frankfurt) and Dorothy Noyes (Ohio State University) I am convening a panel that explores how exemplary deeds and events shape international politics ("Exemplarity in world politics", FD49). Christopher and I will contribute a co-authored paper on precedents in international politics to this discussion.

Columbia UniversityI recently moved to New York City to start working on a new research project on practices of diplomacy and warfare (link). Thanks to a generous fellowship from the European Commission, I will be able to spend the academic year 2018/2019 as a postdoctoral fellow at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University. In the fall 2019, I will return to Goethe University Frankfurt and continue to work on the project there. Come back to this site to find updates on how the project progresses!
