Naeem Inayatullah and his longtime co-author, David Blaney, published “Liberal IPE as a Colonial Science,” in The SAGE Handbook of the History, Sociology and Philosophy of International Relations, edited by Andreas Gofas, Inanna Hamati-Ataya, Nicholas Onuf, (Sage, 2018), pp. 60-74.

They demonstrate that contemporary liberal International Political Economy (IPE) melds together a static, timeless time with a dynamic evolutionary time.  This conflation is traced to the work of Alfred Marshall who was one of four theorists who independently developed neo-classical economics in the 1870s.  Marshall's evolutionary frame is explicitly supportive of colonialism, slavery, and imperialism.  The punchline of the paper is that contemporary IPE shares with Marshall similar commitments, but retains them implicitly.

In a presentation titled, “Debating the Past and the Future in Contemporary Argentina," Dr. Jonathan Ablard shared observations from his recent research trip to Buenos Aires with the Longview Community. The presentation, given on August 29th, touched on a wide array of topics, including abortion, deployment of the armed forces inside the country, declassification of documents, economics and educational policy, and how Argentine citizens engage in lively debates about the role and meaning of their rich and complex history.

Ithaca College has had a very successful programmatic partnership with Longview, a retirement community located on Danby Road, for the past 20 years.  There are a number of opportunities for members of the Ithaca College Community to become involved at Longview.
