I am very excited to be joining the Departamento de Estudios Internacionales at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas in Mexico City. I will be a visiting research professor for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Those who study Latin America will certainly know CIDE. For those who do not, it is perhaps Mexico’s top research institution for the political science, IR, and economics. CIDE has a small (but highly regarded) student body and a faculty of Mexican and international scholars with very strong reputations. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them as I pursue a number of different research projects. I have the great luxury of dedicating the fall semester entirely to research and writing. I will likely be teaching one course in the spring semester (TBD).
On tap for the next semester…
- Revising my book manuscript, currently under review at a great university press-to-be-named-later
- Wrapping up an R&R at ISQ on the influence of small states in world politics
- Completing a project on the NAFTA negotiations with the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
- Finishing a draft article on small-state foreign policy power
- Starting a new research project on Mexican and Brazilian foreign policy, regional organizations, and global order
