I am currently at the ISA of Madness. Near the top of the list of insanity is the Blogging Reception, which included an overflow crowd and some great “spoken blog posts” by Erica Chenoweth, Rob Farley, Amanda Murdie, and Dan Drezner. I recorded the event, and whatever the camera caught before the battery gave out will be posted at some point in the near future. We also announced the winners of the awards….
The good people at SAGE just sent this image along. It’s a mockup of one side of the reception postcards that will be handed out at ISA 2013. We will announce the winners of the awards at the reception.
This constitutes our promised post containing the “final list” of OAIS Award Nominees. This is also your last chance to let us know if we’ve left off an eligible nomination.
We will send out a ballot soon. The current plan is to use a Borda-count process to create a list of finalists and to proceed to a second round to determine the winners in each category. We welcome feedback on that procedure.
A reminder: we will announce winners at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association (ISA). The award ceremony will take place during the first-ever International Studies Blogging reception–which will take place on Thursday April 4th from 7.30-8.30pm. The reception, which is sponsored by SAGE, will feature 4-5 minute “spoken blogpost” presentations. The current lineup includes Erica Chenoweth, Dan Drezner, Rob Farley, Marc Lynch, and Steve Walt. We hope that ISA participants will join us, and note that the OAIS awards are in no way, shape, or form affiliated with the ISA.
