Recent Publications by International Studies Faculty
In Paying for Climate Change, Stephen Macekura argues counter intuitively that the Trump Administration’s climate policy is not that different from his predecessors' in one crucial respect: an ongoing refusal to provide financial aid to help poorer countries contend with climate change. His article appears on Bunk, a new history website featuring insight into contemporary issues.
In November, Professor Padraic Kenney published Dance in Chains:Political Imprisonment in the Modern World, "the first book to trace the history of modern political imprisonment from its origins in the mid-nineteenth century."
In January, Professor Jessica O'Reilly released The Technocratic Antarctic: An Ethnography of Scientific Expertise and Environmental Governance (Cornell UP). Spanning over a decade of research, the book is “an ethnographic account of the scientists and policymakers who work on Antarctica,” and draws upon Professor O’Reilly’s long-standing anthropological relationship with the scientists of Antarctica.
In May, Professor Hamid Ekbia published Heteromation, and Other Stories of Computing and Capitalism. The book explores "the social and technological processes through which economic value is extracted from digitally mediated work, the nature of the value created, and what prompts people to participate in the process."
