The research agenda I have developed as a graduate student breaks down into three categories:
- A sustained, empirically driven attempt at building a theory of right-wing transnationalism. This is the project given expression in my dissertation.
- Relational methodology. I am interested in overcoming the unhelpful dichotomous divide between "positivist" and "interpretivist" methodolgies within our field by helping to further articulate a relational turn in IR.
- Work in the theory and history of international relations. This is represented by my papers on Morgenthau's legacy and the use of Gramsci by IR scholars.
