Last two powerpoints:
Future of IR
Note: Everything above may be revised as needed.
6/14: The powerpoints from the last day of class are posted above.
6/11: Just fyi, the college email system seems to be experiencing another spam attack, so my in-box is more full than usual and it will take me some time to respond to your emails of the past few days.
6/10: The Chapter 15 Quiz is available in Moodle. The Chapter 14 Quiz (posted last week) is also due this Saturday. A question has been added to the Exam 5 Study Guide.
6/7: An interesting website for comparing countries: http://www.nationmaster.com/index.php
The US Department of Defense and climate change: http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-wire/304151-climate-change-causing-pentagon-planning-shift-says-dod-strategist
6/5: My apologies. Briefing Paper 7/8/9 is posted above.
6/4: Schedule change: we will be covering the topic of the environment (Chapter 14) this week (with some possible slop-over into next, as originally scheduled). So the Chapter 14 Quiz is now available. Because of the late notice of the schedule change, and because we might not be finished with the topic until next week, the quiz will remain open until its original due date, Saturday, June 15. The Chapter 13 Quiz is still due this Saturday, June 8, and the Chapter 15 Quiz will still open as scheduled next Sunday, June 8. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Because of the great deal of overlap between Briefing Papers 7, 8, and 9, they have been combined into one final large-ish Briefing Paper. I had previously referred to BP7 as "canceled" (my mistake); I should have said "postponed/combined with BP9". My apologies. So to be mathematically fair, the final combined Briefing Paper will be worth 50 points (not 25 or 75). It is due Friday, June 14. Please let me know if you have any questions.
6/3: The Chapter 13 Quiz is available in Moodle.
A clever youtube video explaining the origins of the 2008 economic crisis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx_LWm6_6tA
5/31: Another question was added to the Study Guide.
5/30: Exam 3/4 has been postponed to Monday, June 3. I apologize for any inconvenience. A couple of new questions based on what we've been covering in class will be added to the Study Guide over the next couple of days, so make sure to check back.
5/29: A question was added to the Study Guide.
5/28: The Chapter 12 Quiz is available in Moodle.
Changes to the Study Guide marked in red.
5/24: Briefing Paper 7 is canceled. There was considerable overlap with BP 6 (and 9).
The Study Guide for the combined Exam 3 & 4 is posted above. It will change during the week, so make sure to check back often.
5/21: A very fun geography guessing game: http://geoguessr.com/
5/20: The Chapter 10 and Chapter 11 Quizzes are available.
5/17: Briefing Paper 6 is posted above. Have a good weekend.
5/13: This week's Briefing Paper 5 has been canceled. Exam 3, originally scheduled for this week, has been postponed to May 31 (the same time as Exam 4). So the next exam is May 31, and will be a combined Exam 3/Exam 4. Please let me know of any questions or problems with this schedule change.
The Chapter 8 and Chapter 9 Quizzes are available in Moodle.
5/8: The final version of the Exam 2 Study Guide is posted. Changes are in red.

4/9: The instructions for Briefing Paper 1 are posted above. It's not due until next Friday, April 20, but there's no reason you can't get started on it now.
Just a reminder that in the event of a class cancelation, anything due that day would be due at the next class meeting. No need to email it to me.
Assignment B: World Map is posted above. Blank maps for Assignment B are in the plastic vertical file holders outside my office door (HWK 114). The assignment is due at the beginning of class this Friday, April 12.
The International Relations Links page is also live; take a look at some of the research sites you might find useful for the Country Project.
The page describing the Country Project is posted above, as are the Country Assignments. As many as possible received their first choice; unfortunately a few countries were REALLY popular (Italy, France, England/Britain/United Kingdom, etc.), so some of you got your second, third, fourth, and in one case, fifth choice. Thanks to those of you who chose unusual countries, or who went above and beyond and gave me a list of your top five or ten. Anyone who has not submitted their country choices, or anyone who would really like to change their assignment, please let me know asap. Just a reminder, no one gets to do the US, and only one person per country. The list above has lots of blanks as ideas, but there are many others not listed.
This is where you will find announcements related to class. Such as:
We will be using both
website and Moodle this quarter. The course website is where you will
find the syllabus, schedule, and other course information; the assignments;
study guides; and information on how to get started in Moodle.
Moodle is where you will find chapter quizzes and your grades.
