I am a permanent contributor to the international relations theory website Duck of Minerva.
I am a contributing writer (a monthly column) at The Diplomat.
I am a contributing writer (a bimonthly cover story) at Newsweek Japan.
Here is my Facebook page.
Here is my Twitter account.
Here is my LinkedIn page.
My television news appearances, on BBC mostly, can be watched here.
I received my PhD in political science from Ohio State University, with a specialization in international relations and political theory. My IR subfields are international security and international organization.
My best topical & regional areas are:
US Foreign Policy
International Relations Theory
International Monetary Fund
In Busan, I teach US foreign policy, Globalization, Post-9/11 Security, basic IR theory, International Organization, and US politics.
My language training includes: German, French, Russian, Latin, Korean, classical Greek
I lived in Europe for 4 years. I have lived in Korea since summer 2008. I have travelled to about 40 different countries, including North Korea.
In my other life, I would have been a screenwiter, a musician, or a classicist. I enjoy film a lot and write about infrequently here. I also enjoy classical music very much (Austro-Germans mostly), and I read a lot of course. I find antiquity so fascinating I took two extra years of grad school just to study Greek and Latin. Reading Socrates’ ‘Apology’ in the original is one great achievements of my life.
And I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t admit how much time I like to waste on Xbox. Grade-schoolers mocking me over the headset as they blow me up in ‘Halo’ seems to be my gaming fate. Send me a friend request at gamertag ‘Darth Homer.’
Thanks for coming to my site. I hope you like it.
