ISA 2021 conference

April 13, 2021

ISA 2021From 6 to 9 April 2021, I participated in the annual meeting of the International Studies Association (ISA). The conference was originally to be held in Las Vegas but due to the COVID-19 pandemic instead took place online. I spoke at two events: at a roundtable titled "Thinking with exemplarity: A bridge across the global-local divide" that I co-organized with Dorothy Noyes from Ohio State University, we brought together a number of colleagues to continue the conversation about the power of examples in global politics we begun last year at our conference at the Mershon Center at Ohio State University. In addition, I participated in a roundtable on "Perspectives on agency in Global Governance". Drawing on my previous work on political agency, I talked about how a more elaborate conception of agency can enrich our thinking about Global Governance.
