Here are two articles I just finished. Academic style — with footnotes and everything.
The first one, “Empowerment among Nations,” is going into a volume on the concept of power in world politics edited by Felix Berenskoetter and Mike Williams. Felix and Mike are PhD students at the LSE, former Millennium editors, and — get this — they got Steven Lukes, Joseph Nye, Ned Lebow, John Gaventa and Joe Grieko to contribute pieces!
The other article, “The Power of Metaphor: Consent, Dissent, Revolution,” I wrote for a volume on Discourse, Identity and Politics in Europe edited by Richard Mole at UCL. The contributors here are a more po-mo kind of crowd. I always wanted to write something on the topic of metaphor and the creation of social order. Here it is.
