April 2012 book talks

This is going to be a big month for me–I’m taking my book Ground Wars on the road in the US, and will give nine talks about the book at various universities and conferences around the country.

The list is below, details TBA for a few of them.

  • Monday April 9, 12-2pm, George Washington University, Washington D.C.
  • Tuesday April 10, 11-12.30pm, American University, Washington D.C.
  • Wednesday April 11, 10-12pm, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
  • Thursday April 12, 4-6pm, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois
  • Friday April 13, 4:35-6.15pm – Midwest Political Science Association 70th Annual Conference (I’m speaking as part of Panel 55-2 on political anthropology)
  • Monday April 16, 12-2pm, Columbia University, New York, New York (a comeback at my old school, in a colloquium series I used to organize)
  • Tuesday April 17, 6pm-8pm, New York University, Institute for Public Knowledge
  • Wednesday April 18, 12-1.3opm, Quinnipiac University, Hamden, Connecticut
  • Thursday April 19, 4.30-6.30pm, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey

Then Friday April 20, I’m speaking at the International Symposium on Online Journalism in Texas-Austin, but not about the book–though after nine talks, who knows, I may automatically start talking about political campaigns rather than the journalistic online-start ups I’m supposed to focus on…

It’s been great to present the book in the UK and Denmark over the last two months but this of course is something special, a chance to talk about American politics with Americans, including in at least one instance with people who have worked on one of the campaigns I deal with in the book–that’s going to be a blast and a great experience, I’m sure.
