CURRENT RESEARCH 

Congressional Foreign Policy Entrepreneurship:  This research explores the power of junior congressional entrepreneurs to influence U.S. foreign policy over the past decade. I advance a new model of inside/outside strategies of congressional foreign policy advocacy that includes coordination with interest groups and the use of policy narratives and social media to support preferred foreign policy pathways. The project employs a structured, focused comparison of case studies of innovation and obstruction, such as Senator Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) resistance to the Iran nuclear agreement and Representative Tammy Duckworth’s (D-IL) campaign to allow women to serve in the military in combat roles. Results of this study will be published in a new book with The University of Michigan Press in 2018, as well as in academic journal articles over the next three years.

Critical Norm Theory and Nonproliferation: This research program critically examines constructivist security studies theory regarding the power of international norms to regulate state behavior.In a series of previously published essays, I argued for the need for a better model of pathways for the dissemination of norms (internalization through domestic structures). My book with Stanford University Press (2016) advanced an agentic constructivist model of the relationship between technology innovations and international norm change. It developed case studies of the political implications of cutting-edge advances, including the atomic bomb, armed drones, advanced satellite reconnaissance, and cyber-warfare. I also have developed research projects on critical norm theory and nuclear nonproliferation with colleagues at the Peace Research Institute in Frankfurt/Leibniz Institut Hessische Stiftung Friedens und Konfliktforschung (PRIF/HSFK). Dr. Carmen Wunderlich and I have a forthcoming co-authored article on norm contestation and nuclear nonproliferation in the journal Review of International Studies, and we plan to share this work through conference papers and future academic journal articles.

Strategic Culture in the 21stCentury:  This research analyzes the role of strategic culture in shaping national security policy. The argument that culture influences strategy is both age-old and a subject of renewed study. However, past scholarship and exchanges typically ended without resolution of key issues and left a gap between theory and practical policy applications.  This research program includes an examination of strategic culture and tailored deterrence, as well as a study of thelinks between strategic culture, weapons of mass destruction policy, and threat assessment.

U.S. Political Polarization, Factionalism, and Foreign Policy:  This research program explores the impact and influence of ideological factions such as the Tea Party on various aspects of the U.S. foreign policy-making process. I have presented conference papers and have articles in development that examinehow the rise of the Tea Party has impacted key areas of U.S. foreign policy-making, including the intraparty Republican battle over foreign policy, congressional assertiveness in foreign policy, and the rise of a Tea Party-Antiwar Left foreign policy coalition in Congress. In collaboration with Dr. Patrick Homan (Dominican University), I have developed a new book proposal to explore the power of factionalism on foreign policy (currently under review at Oxford University Press).

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES PEDAGOGY: ACTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING and CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

Director for Active Teaching and Learning Workshops: In collaboration with Professors Kent Kille and Matthew Krain, I have directed active teaching and learning workshops in international studies at Rosario University in Bogota, Colombia; the University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia; Moscow State Institute for International Relations, Russia (MGIMO-University); and Institute for International Relations, University of Brasilia, 2006-2010: These workshops included presentations and interactive exercises designed to enhance the achievement of educational objectives in international studies. Workshop sessions addressed the philosophy behind active teaching and learning and techniques including role-playing simulations, structured debates, case studies, policy-making exercises, the use of Internet technology, and teaching with film. These workshops helped to establish larger communities of teacher-scholars in international studies from institutions across Russia, Australia, and Latin America.

Cross-National Active Teaching and Learning: The scholarship on innovative pedagogical approaches for teaching international studies has expanded significantly in recent decades, becoming more systematic and offering new exercises with clearly articulated educational goals and procedures. This collaborative project (with Kent Kille and Matthew Krain) evaluates the utility of active teaching and learning exercises that cut across different national and cultural contexts have been relatively rare, even though classes often analyze similar phenomena. Our work examines areas for cross-national active teaching and learning collaborations, as well as potential challenges. In addition to directing an ISA workshop on new, exciting opportunities for cross-national active teaching and learning, we have promoted continued collaborations.

War and Peace on Film:  With the support of a GLCA Pathways to Learning Collegium Grant for Innovative Pedagogy, I developed a new class employing film and alternative reading materials as narratives on international security.  The project included assessment of the effectiveness of filmic approaches in achieving educational objectives.  I presented results of study at the GLCA Pathways to Learning Symposium, Ann Arbor, MI, June 11, 2010.

Political Science and International Relations Curriculum Reviews: I have completed reviews of political science and international relations curriculums for Manhattan College, Texas Christian University, Drew University, Marietta College, Hanover College, Ursinus College, The University of South Australia, DePauw University, Heidelberg College, Mount Union College, and the Institute for the International Education of Students Programs in Freiburg, Germany (IES-Freiburg), and Vienna, Austria (IES-Vienna).
