International Relations theory good for something after all?
That’s just a joke, by the way – I love IR, I do! Please don’t fire me.
But anyway, this post by D. Drezner on the Foreign Policy blog really gets down to the nitty-gritty. How would IR theory deal with a zombie invasion? And since I’m an anthropologist I’m forced to ask – could anthropology do better? I’ll add that I’m not apologizing for going off-topic here: considering a socio-political theory of zombies raises valuable questions about life and non-life, and hence is very nature/culturey. Really. So I encourage anyone reading to visit the original article (comments too) and come back here to propose a more anthropological/cultural take on the problem. Anxious potential victims await your guidance.
