A thank you, which is long overdue(!), to guest blogger Stefanie Fishel.
Looking back, her great posts on “thinking with the body,” which played with a comment that Jan and I made at the Millennium conference about STS being a “cabinet of curiosities,” is a favorite for me, along with “The Bodies Politic,” are all good reminders of the rich interface possible between international relations and science and technology studies.
Stefanie also a fresh new article out: “Theorizing violence in the Responsibility to Protect” (Critical Studies on Security, Volume 1, Issue 2, 2013, Special Issue: Late Warfare), check it out!
A quick plug for Stefanie from when we introduced her earlier this year:
Stefanie Fishel received her doctorate in Political Science from Johns Hopkins University and a Master’s degree in International Relations from the University of Victoria. Dr. Fishel approaches International Relations using techniques and inspirations from Science, Technology, and Society (STS) studies, the philosophy of science, and biology. She is currently at Colgate University in their Peace and Conflict Studies area.
I met Stefanie at the 2012 Millennium Conference at the London School of Economics during a post-conference workshop about how actor-network theory and international relations might fit together (if at all). Andrew Barry was the keynote speaker. In all, it was great.
In her LSE talk, “Lively Vessels and Contaminated States: Biological Metaphor and Global Politics” Stephanie described … well, I’ll let her fill you in over the next month.
Join us in welcoming Stefanie to the blog!
