Please join the International Relations Speaker Series as they host Dr. Lucia Rafanelli Assistant Professor of Political Science & International Affairs at the George Washington University. Dr. Rafanelli received her Ph.D. in Politics (with a specialization in political theory) from Princeton University in 2018.  her primary research interests include contemporary political theory, global justice, and theories of human rights, with philosophical interests in collective agency and collective personhood, philosophy of law, and ethics and artificial intelligence. Her book, Promoting Justice Across Borders: The Ethics of Reform Intervention (Oxford University Press, 2021), develops ethical standards for what she calls “reform intervention”—an expansive category encompassing any deliberate attempt to promote justice in another society. 

This event will take place virtually.

In “How I Wrote [Title Here]” we invite scholars to campus to discuss how they turned a research project into a book. Each session features a writer and their recent book. Some are first-time authors, navigating the process from dissertation to publication. Others are well-established scholars with deep experience and diverse perspectives. We will talk about the choices the authors made in research, presentation, and marketing, and the choices that were made for them by circumstances, publishers, and reviewers. The series aims to share stories about the making of scholarly books. We invite readers behind the scene to hear the story of how some of the best new books in International Relations were made.
