About

Patrick Thaddeus Jackson is currently Professor of International Studies in the School of International Service at the American University in Washington, DC; he is also the Director of the AU Honors Program. He previously taught at Columbia University and New York University. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University in 2001. In 2003-2004, he served as President of the International Studies Association-Northeast; in 2012-2013, he did so again. He is presently the Series Editor of the University of Michigan Press' book series Configurations: Critical Studies of World Politics. Jackson's research interests include culture and agency, international relations theory (particularly the intersection of realism and constructivism), scientific methodology, the role of rhetoric in public life, civilizations in world politics, the sociology of academic knowledge, science fiction, and the formation of subjectivity both in the classroom and in the broader social sphere. He teaches courses on IR theory, political philosophy, research methodology, the philosophy of social science, and the intersection of popular culture and international politics. He has three times received university awards for the innovative use of technology in the classroom, and was the AU Honors Program's Faculty Member of the Year for 2004-5. He received the School of International Service's Scholar/Teacher of the Year award in 2011, and the U.S. Professor of the Year Award for the District of Columbia in 2012. Among his recent publications are “The Limits of Interpretation: C.A.W. Manning and the “going concern” of international society,” Journal of International Political Theory (2020); “Reclaiming the Social: Relationalism in Anglophone International Studies” (co-authored with Daniel H. Nexon), Cambridge Review of International Affairs (2019), and “Causal Claims and Causal Explanation in International Studies,” Journal of International Relations and Development (2017). His book Civilizing the Enemy: German Reconstruction and the Invention of the West was published in 2006 by the University of Michigan Press, and he is the co-editor of Civilizational Identity: The Production and Reproduction of 'Civilizations' in International Relations (with Martin Hall; Palgrave Macmillan, 2007). His book The Conduct of Inquiry in International Relations (Routledge, 2011; second edition, 2016) was the recipient of the 2012 Yale H. Ferguson Award for advancing the vibrancy of international studies as a pluralist discipline, and the 2012 International Studies Association's Theory section's best book of the year award.
