Winter 2011

This class is the continuation of the Ph.D. core course in International Relations (IR). Together, PSCI 6600 and PSCI 6601 provide a survey of IR theory and research with a view to preparing students for the Ph.D. comprehensive examination. Building on the material studied in the first half of the course, this second half focuses on critical and reflectivist (or post-positivist) approaches, which have emerged in the field since the 1980s. It aims to familiarize students with some of the key works, central ideas and debates, and recent scholarship in this vein of theorizing. By the end of the course, students should be able to critically analyze the epistemological orientations, ontological assumptions, and political and ethical implications of different approaches and research traditions in IR. As a seminar, the course is centered on class discussion, which will be introduced by student presentations. Requirements and Evaluation Requirement Percentage of final grade 25% Due date weekly (sign up for a date in the first class)

Class participation (including attendance) Class presentation 15% Two review essays

60% (30% each) the day the approach under review is discussed

Class participation: Students are expected to attend all classes, read the assigned texts prior to class meetings, and participate actively and regularly in class discussions. Class participation will be evaluated based on the quality and quantity of contributions to class discussions with greater weight given to quality. Quality contributions to class discussions include questions and

comments which demonstrate that you can analytically reflect on and critically engage with the central ideas of the readings under discussion, and that you can make connections between these ideas and other themes or readings in the course. Class presentation: Each student has to give an in-class presentations of about 25 minutes introducing and responding to the required readings (and optionally, recommended readings) for a particular class. You will sign up for the date of your presentation in the first class. The class presentation should (a) summarily outline the central ideas (overall argument and main points) of the readings; (b) discuss how the readings relate to each other (and/or to other approaches and themes discussed in the course) by identifying points of agreement and disagreement; (c) present analytical and/or critical reflections on individual readings or the general approach under discussion, and evaluate the overall contribution of the approach to the field; and possibly (d) raise questions about the readings and the approach for class discussion. It is essential that your presentation is not a mere summary of the readings. The summary outline of central ideas of the readings should only take up about half of your presentation (or less). The class presentation should be supported by a two-page handout that highlights the main points under discussion. Two review essays: Each student has to write two review essays (2400-3000 words plus bibliography, 12 point font, double-spaced). The review essay must provide a critical analysis and assessment of a particular approach to IR theory, as (re)presented by the assigned readings. (For classes with two required readings, the review essay must cover at least one additional recommended reading. For classes with three or more required readings, the review essay must cover all the required readings and may additionally cover recommended readings.) It is essential that your review essay develops a clear argument about the chosen topic in response to the readings. The approaches chosen for your review essays may not be the same as the one chosen for your class presentation. The review essays are due as hard copies at the beginning of class on the days the chosen approaches will be discussed. Readings In case you do not have a basic familiarity with the major approaches in IR theory or you need to refresh your knowledge, a good resource is Dunne, Tim, Milja Kurki and Steve Smith (eds.) (2010) International Relations Theories: Discipline and Diversity, second edition, Oxford: Oxford University Press. To build your personal IR library (and depending on your own interests), you may consider buying some or all of the following books at your preferred retail outlet (but this is not mandatory):
