Course Description: 

This course is a graduate field seminar in international relations. We will trace the theoretical and methodological development of the discipline, examine the major questions and debates that have motivated international relations scholarship, and survey some of the foundational works in the field. While one semester is not even close to enough time to provide a comprehensive review of international relations research, this class serves as an introduction to major themes, puzzles, and paradigms that have shaped and continue to shape contemporary work in IR. Ph.D. students should leave the class with a good sense of where IR scholarship is coming from, where it is at, where it may be going, and which sorts of original contributions can move the field forward. The class is intended to help 1st and 2nd year Ph.D. students prepare for the IR qualifying exam as well as to conduct independent research in international politics.
