  Julia Black   LSE appoints new Pro-Director for Research and Vice-Chair of the Appointments Committee

The School has recently appointed two senior positions.

Professor Julia Black (pictured), Department of Law, has been appointed as the Pro-Director for Research. She takes over this area of responsibility from Professor Stuart Corbridge, who became Deputy Director and Provost earlier this term. Professor Black will be part of the Director’s Management Team and will provide academic leadership for the School’s strategic research ambitions.

LSE Director, Professor Craig Calhoun, commented "I am delighted to welcome Julia to the senior management team at LSE. She has an impressive research record in her own right, good judgment and a clear vision for further strengthening research at LSE."

Professor Eric Neumayer, Department of Geography and Environment, has been appointed as the Vice-Chair of the Appointments Committee replacing Professor David Stevenson. Professor Stevenson has been the Vice-Chair since August 2010.

Professor Calhoun commented "We are extremely fortunate to have such a strong replacement for David, who has been an extraordinary Vice-Chair. He has been an enormous help to me personally as I learned about LSE and I would like to put on record my appreciation. I am also delighted to welcome Eric, who has been a fine department head and shown already a great deal of wisdom and insight in my dealings with him. I very much look forward to working with him in this capacity."

The role of the Vice-Chair of the Appointments Committee is to act as an independent guardian of academic standards and quality on behalf of the Appointments Committee.

Both posts start on 1 January 2014.

  GCSS   GCSS winning design team selected

International award winning architect Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has been selected as the winner of the School’s design competition for the new Global Centre for the Social Sciences (GCSS).

Professor Craig Calhoun, Director of LSE, chaired the jury panel which made the final decision. He commented: "From an extremely strong field of submissions, LSE has chosen Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) to create a new structure at the heart of our campus. They have designed beautiful, dynamic buildings around the world and they offered an elegant, thoughtful submission to this competition. RSHP grasped that this would be a building at once for the university and for the city, an enhancement to public as well as academic space. My colleagues and I are delighted that the RSHP team will now work with us to complete the design and add to the excitement of our terrific London location."

Part of the decision making process included a review of the votes and feedback from the exhibition of the five schemes which was held between 7-18 October. Staff, students and visitors were able to vote online for their favourite scheme. 575 votes were cast of which nearly 50 per cent were by students. Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners were Team E and received 38 per cent of the votes making them the overwhelming winner. More

Michaelmas Term Teaching Surveys

Message from Professor Paul Kelly (pictured), Pro-Director for Teaching and Learning

In teaching weeks eight and nine, the School will be conducting teaching surveys. Students will be asked to complete a questionnaire in classes/seminars for half-unit courses, and for any other courses on which teachers only teach this term (teaching on full-unit courses will mainly be surveyed in the Lent term).

The questions ask for student views on the course as a whole at this particular point in time. They also ask for their opinion of their teachers’ performance. The survey covers permanent faculty, GTAs and LSE Fellows.

Teachers should conduct surveys during classes/seminars, which should take no more than ten minutes to complete. Some lecturers might also conduct a separate survey about lectures (i.e. if they do not teach classes/seminars). Please ask a student volunteer to collect completed questionnaires, and to return them in a sealed envelope to a drop box in the Student Services Centre.

    New Field Research Method Lab blog launched

On Wednesday 20 November, a new blog was launched to act as an online platform to share field research experiences.

The Field Research Method Lab blog aims to bring together both established and early career researchers to appraise various constraints that they have encountered in the field, and reflect upon how they have successfully or unsuccessfully addressed those constraints.

The blog requests that each contributor draw some lessons, both practical and academic, which can be shared with others. Wherever possible each post accompanies a research outline as well as details of research outcomes, so that readers can better understand how the researcher’s experiences in the field have fed into the final research outputs.

The first series of posts will be focused on addressing field research constraints in China, but the aim is to expand the blog’s coverage to other regions.

For more information, see If you’d like to know more, or are interested in contributing, contact the editor, Dr Hyun Bang Shin, at

  Michael Denis Donelan   Michael Denis Donelan 1932-2013

The Department of International Relations is sad to announce the death of Michael Denis Donelan (pictured), Emeritus Reader in International Relations, earlier this year.

Michael took a lectureship in the Department in 1964 and retired as Reader in International Relations in 1997. Having studied history at Oriel College, Oxford Michael held positions at Muenster and at Princeton Universities as well as in the Conservative Party’s Research Department.

At LSE Michael taught international politics, ethics of war and the politics of international economic relations. His interest in theory was reflected in his publications, especially the monographs, International Political Theory (1990) and Honor in Foreign Policy (2007), as well as the edited Reason of State (1978).

Michael’s strong Catholic beliefs shaped much of his approach to ethical issues in international relations. He was a true gentleman and scholar; a man who valued words and took care not to waste them, and above all encouraged discussion with students and colleagues in the true spirit of the university.

Decentralisation in Economic Development and State Building

Three LSE academics have spoken at a symposium organised in honour of Professor Roger Myerson, 2007 Nobel Laureate in Economics.

Tim Besley, School Professor of Economics and Political Science, Dr Jean-Paul Faguet (pictured), Reader in the Political Economy of Development, and Adnan Khan, Research and Policy Director in the International Growth Centre, all spoke at the symposium which took place on Tuesday 12 November at All Souls College, University of Oxford.

Dr Faguet said: "This invitation-only event featured presentations on theoretical aspects of decentralisation and federalism as applied to state-building, deep empirical studies of such attempts in Asia and Latin America, and expositions by senior military commanders who attempted to implement such strategies in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Fewer English MPs able to play the 'born and bred' card

English MPs able to play the "born and bred" card to woo potential voters are a relatively rare breed, with new statistics revealing that fewer than half of them are born in the regions they represent.

Data released by Democratic Audit at LSE shows that only 43 per cent of English MPs can legitimately claim local roots, although Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland fare much better, with a 76 per cent average.

The finding is not a worrying sign for democracy, says LSE policy analyst Richard Berry, because it shows a variety of past experience.

"However, the fact that significant numbers of MPs have spent their careers in London and the South East should be cause for some concern," he says.

LSE data reveals that despite London having just 63 of 577 parliamentary seats in the country, the capital has dominated the work histories of a vast number of UK politicians prior to election.

"Across the UK as a whole, just 16 per cent of jobs are based in London. What this data shows, however, is that large numbers of MPs have worked in professions centred in London, including finance, law, publishing and journalism prior to entering politics," Mr Berry says. More

Egyptian Foreign Policy towards Israel under Mubarak: from cold peace to strategic peace?

On: Monday 25 November from 6.30-8pm in the Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Dr Amnon Aran (pictured), City University.

Iranian Foreign Policy after the Election of Hassan Rouhani

On: Wednesday 27 November from 4.30-6pm in the Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Anoush Ehteshami (pictured), Durham University.

The victory of Rouhani represents the defeat of the most peripheral groups in the Iranian political spectrum. In a day, one could say, Ahmadinejad and his supporters arguably lost all of their clout and popular appeal. The support they had amassed during the previous eight years apparently melted away, with no-one ultimately making a fuss about the rejection of Ahmadinejad’s candidate for the presidency.

Exploring the context and background of his election, Professor Ehteshami will question what drives President Rouhani’s world view and what constitutes his foreign policy agenda. He will also explore what his election victory tells us about Iran and where it may be heading in the future.

This event is free and open to all on a first come, first served basis. For more information, email Sara Masry at More

- 60 second interview

    James Strong  

with..... Dr James Strong

I’m an LSE Fellow in the Department of International Relations, where I teach on the MSc programme specialising in foreign policy analysis, and where I completed my PhD in 2012. In between finishing as a student and starting as a teacher, I worked for a year as head of the Director’s Office, helping Professor Calhoun get established in his first year at the School, working on the Strategic Review, writing a few speeches, and generally trying not to break the place too badly. Fortunately I’ve now been released back into the academic wilds, and I hope soon to publish my book about British public debate over the invasion of Iraq.

Some quick fun facts about me: I grew up in Berrylands, about a 10 minute walk from LSE's sports ground, I represented Oxford against Cambridge at both lightweight rowing and judo (despite not really knowing any judo - long story), I’m surprisingly good at Laserquest, and I once became a tax accountant by mistake. For two years.

What are the main differences between your current role and your past positions at the School?

Crikey. It's all different. I've had about ten different jobs at the School over the past five years, which I promise is not as damning as it sounds. I don't know everything about what’s going on at the centre of the School anymore, but I do have my own office (sort of - it’s borrowed, thanks Jurgen!). I do much more teaching, which I like. I can’t speak for the students, but hopefully they like it too. I'm less surprised by the shift from vacation to term time, with the sudden rush as all the students arrive, and an equally sudden silence as everybody leaves. I read more. I'm significantly less likely to have to shut down a game of beer pong in the Butler's Wharf residence at 3am. It’s not my fault any longer if a department runs out of offices for its staff. And I no longer send 300 emails a day.

What advice would you give to new students coming to LSE?

Other than "no, seriously, answer the question", which I’ve been hammering in to my own students over the first few weeks of term? Go to the public lectures, as many as possible. Live in Halls of Residence. Even those of you who go on to work for Goldman Sachs won’t be able to afford to live so centrally in future. Beer pong is a useful life skill. Use office hours - I’ll be sitting here whether people turn up or not. Try the sandwiches at the Fourth Floor Café Bar. Try the beer at the ‘other’ George, on Fleet Street (especially if it’s from Sambrooks in Battersea or Hogs Back in Guildford). If you are a PhD student, do not buy an Xbox until after you submit.

Where in the world have you always wanted to go but never quite made it.... yet?

Tough one. Do I have to pick just one? I’m not sure there’s anywhere I’ve always wanted to go. I should probably go to Germany at some point. Moscow looks interesting. I’d love to be able to range around the remnants of the crusader castles in Jordan and Syria. Maybe not just yet. I haven’t spent enough time in Africa or Japan. I’d like to get to Cape Town before too long. And Beijing and Washington DC. Basically I’m going to have to take a proper gap year and try to tick some of these places off, or come up with something more jet-setting than British foreign policy as a topic for my research.

What is your favourite animal?

Real or imaginary? Real: cat. Imaginary: dinosaur.

Who would be your top five dinner party guests?

The Queen. Not the actual Queen obviously, but the one who did the film with James Bond before the Olympics Opening Ceremony last year. Boris Johnson - not now, but when he’s Prime Minister so I can see if it’s actually possible to run a country solely by dressing like Wurzel Gummidge and wittering about Odysseus. Gregg Wallace from Masterchef, so I can make my banoffee pie with the buttery biscuit base and get him to sing the buttery biscuit base song. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost - in case of zombie attack, and because Nick’ll bring cornettos.

What, or who, makes you laugh?

Recently I’ve been laughing a lot at goats yelling like humans. That, and the talking chimpanzee in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs banging on about gummy bears, and when Michael McIntyre says "there was a woman at home…I mean, when I say that there was a woman at home, I mean my wife…" and when he says other things. The Lonely Island, Shaun of the Dead, and my friend Big Al with his unique and colourful vocabulary, despite the fact it really isn’t suitable for anyone at all.

The School is recruiting and training eight internal mediators.

The aim is to have a pool of trained mediators from academic and support staff (in roles at band five and above) who can help to resolve issues between staff in departments. Training will take place on 21-23 January and 4-5 February 2014 and an informal interview and selection process will apply.

If you are interested in being a trained internal mediator at the School, ensure that your Head of Department or Service Leader supports you attending the training and also you being part of the pool of internal mediators (it is estimated that a maximum of one to three days may be required to facilitate mediation).

For more information, click here. Please note the closing date for applications is Wednesday 27 November.


Presenting Research Through Visual Media: two workshops

In collaboration with experts from University of the Arts London, the LSE Research Festival 2014 is holding two free half-day workshops, designed to help you understand how best to showcase your research through visual media.

Workshop One: creating short films from your research
If you have recorded video/film footage over the course of your research project but are unsure how to turn it into something presentable, this workshop offers an opportunity to learn some basic principles. During the session, you will be shown examples of how best to use film to get your message across effectively and what pitfalls you should avoid.

Workshop Two: research posters
Posters are an increasingly popular way of illustrating research and a great method for presenting complex information succinctly. At this workshop, you will discuss the ‘mechanics’ of poster design, learning how choice of layout, typeface and image can impact on the success of a poster’s ability to communicate to an audience.

If you are considering entering the LSE Research Festival’s 2014 exhibition, but would like expert guidance on your submission, do come along to one or both of these workshops. For more information and to book, visit LSE Research Festival workshops.
