Why subscribe?

If you’re seeing this, you probably know me through social media. (Hi!) Twitter is great for one-liners and links, but I do periodically have thoughts to share at greater length. My vision for a newsletter right now includes:

  • promotion of exciting scholarship in international relations and political science (not just my own)!

  • links to think tank and other reports about topics relevant to the headlines and to deeper trends in global politics

  • a stubbornly personal voice—this won’t replace your other newsletters or information sources, but it will enliven your thinking and reading

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
