Description and Objectives:

Political Science 584 is designed as a graduate level introduction to the study of international political economy (IPE). I have two primary objectives for the course. The first is to provide an overview of the theories and topics in IPE. Toward this end we will read some of the "classics" in the field, some survey-type articles and examples of recent research on specific topics. The second objective is for seminar participants to develop original research proposals.

The course will be run as a discussion group in which everyone is expected to participate. Each week we will focus on a few works and organize the discussion around a set of standard research questions: what is the theoretical utility of the key concept(s)? How rigorously is the concept related to other concepts? How effectively is a theory articulated and its derivations formulated in testable form? How well is the concept operationalized? What substantive, policy or theoretical implications are suggested by the particular perspectives/approaches? What are the strengths and limitations? What are some fruitful areas for future research?

Course Requirements:

All seminar participants are expected to complete all of the required readings for each class meeting. You will be evaluated on several points of performance. The breakdown for your evaluation follows, and is discussed in more detail below.

General participation/"thought" papers: 10%

Discussion Papers/seminar leader: 60% (5 at 12% each)

Written research proposal: 20%

Oral presentation of research proposal: 10%


Beginning with week four, students in the seminar will be responsible for the general direction and caliber of class discussions. Each student will be a discussion leader or co-leader for five seminar sessions. As a discussion leader you must 1) be familiar with research questions and the methods used to address those questions in the required readings, 2) develop an inventory of relevant articles from recent issues of the major journals, 3) provide responses to the research questions stated above, and 4) initiate analytic discussion questions specifically relevant to the topic at hand.

A short (about 5 pages) discussion paper dealing with points 1 through 4 above should be distributed to all seminar participants, either via email before class, or via hard copy distributed in class (no late papers will be accepted after the class period in which they are due). The inventory of relevant articles can appear as a bibliography at the end of your discussion paper.

Your general participation grade will be based on your ability and willingness to make meaningful contributions to the seminar, and on written "thought" papers you turn in before class. On the weeks when you are not writing a discussion paper (including week 2), you must turn in a very short (1 page maximum) "thought" paper with a set of analytic questions you have, and/or would like to have discussed regarding the readings for the week. Please email me your short papers no later than 12 noon on Thursdays (use email address at the top of the syllabus).


Written Research Proposal and Oral Presentation:

The tasks of reading and assimilating the required materials for this type of class make it difficult to simultaneously develop and finish an original research paper. You will thus be required to write and present a professional quality research proposal rather than actually carry out the research. The goal is for you to develop a proposal that you can use to apply for funding, use as a base for a professional conference paper, or as a starting point for a master’s or Ph.D. thesis. We will discuss the specifics of the research proposal in class, but you should anticipate producing a document of about 20-25 pages in length. Your oral presentation will take place during the last two class periods (but this may change depending on class size), and the written proposal (hard copy please) is due the first day of final exams.

Additional Items:

First, I want to stress that I am happy to include the following paragraph from the "Enhancing Success" project:

"NIU abides by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which mandates reasonable accommodations be provided for qualified students with disabilities. If you have a disability and may require some type of instructional and/or examination accommodation, please contact me early in the semester so that I can provide or facilitate in providing accommodations you may need. If you have not already done so, you will need to register with the Center for Access-Ability Resources (CAAR), the designated office on campus to provide services and administer exams with accommodations for students with disabilities. The CAAR office is located on the 4th floor of the University Health Services building (815-753-1303). I look forward to talking with you soon to learn how I may be helpful in enhancing your academic success in this course."

Second, there is some concern in the department that classroom decorum is slipping. In order for this course to be a pleasant and intellectually stimulating experience for all seminar participants, we must treat one another with respect at all times. At a minimum, this means that the discussion should remain orderly (differences of opinion are encouraged, but must be expressed in a respectful manner), cell phone conversations will not be tolerated, and people should refrain from walking in/out of the room except for emergencies. We will have a break about midway through each class session so please wait to take care of personal business until then.

Finally, a note about plagiarism: I expect all work you turn in to be your own, with no copying of any one else’s work. You must identify and acknowledge all sources of ideas and information that you use in doing your assignments. I will deal with any cheating or plagiarism as harshly as University policies allow.
