The Research Centre of International Relations will hold its 1st SOURCE roundtable on the 17th and 18 th November 2014 in the War Studies Meeting Room. SOURCE is a EC-funded project dealing with societal security in Europe. Within this framework, the RCIR has recently designed methodological principles to map out the professions and institutions in charge of securing society in Europe. This first workshop will invite a group of experts who are conducting similar investigations to reflect and comment on the SOURCE mapping methodology. The discussion will tackle the potential articulations between different mapping methods: network analysis, digital or geometric methods, oral history, prosopography, in situ ethnographic observation, in depth biographic interviews, etc.
In this podcast, following from her talk at RCIR, Professor Karin Fierke discusses with Dr. Peter Busch (War Studies, KCL) her latest book: Political Self Sacrifice: Agency, Body and Emotion in International Relations, published by Cambridge University Press, for more information please click here.
This event took place on 15th November 2013, War Studies Meeting Room (K6.07) Strand Campus, King’s College London. You can read her original article on RCIR Forumhere.
