EISA – Athens

After Thessaloniki–which was my first ever visit to Greece (I know!)–Athens comes quickly after. A very valuable conference and great opportunity to see new and familiar faces. Much looking forward to this!

EWIS – Thessaloniki

Off to Thessaloniki for my first in person conference/workshop since ISA 2018. I am not even sure I remember the etiquette…

… short update afterwards: It was amazing. Completely different experience than a regular conference. We had time to just have conceptual conversations and discussion. I needed this.

Politicologenetmaal, June 13-14

Together with Tim Haesebrouck (Universiteit Gent), I am hosting a workshop at the upcoming ‘Politicologenetmaal’ — the Dutch /Flemish 24hrs political science conferenceat the University of Antwerp this week:

Understanding Foreign Policy: The Interplay Between Domestic and International Politics

You can find the original call for papers here and for those who could not join this year, perhaps we will see each other in 2020!

60th ISA Annual Convention, March 27-30

I’ll be joining the IR-crowd at the upcoming International Studies Association (ISA) Annual Convention this week in Toronto, Canada. Trying to combine it with my first year full-teaching Assistant Prof. position it will be a bit of a shorter visit but you can still find me in the following three panels, presenting two papers in the first whilst chairing the last.

… and if I may pick a favourite: I am thoroughly enjoying working on the later paper at the moment, ‘The Politics of Pity‘, which I will present on Friday.
