How begin it? My first line: International Studies/International Relations: Scholars and the 2.0 world. Second line: IR Transnational Politics and Web 2.0-Social media: goals of professional and scholarship at International Studies/International Relations.
Well, it is better the phrase from the video: "Web 2.0 and specifically social media blurs the boundary between Personal, professional, the civic and Scholarly in international relations". So, I could say as a scholarly: Paradigms, Tools, Theory and Practice are involved and figure out news-other ways to be critical, reflective and integrate multilevel approaches.
These words is a brief door of the surprises about the use Web 2.0, TIC, Social Media and get information and knowledge about international politics, transnational politics, international relations.
I would like to remember Professor James N Rosenau (1997) and his phrase: moving up the ladder of abstraction (pág. 2) . I would say the ladder of knowledge with 2.0 world need all together in a complex relationship", all of us move on and struggle in IRWorld: theorist and practitioner, the teachers and students. Newly remember Professor James N Rosenau when visited Central University of Venezuela, at Graduate Program of International Relations (1997) and his words "For Mirna, fellow student, theorist and new friend". Yes, every day I am a fellow student...
So, many things to do, many things to work in International Studies/International Relations.
The Video in the link are very struggle reality and all everyone must care pay attention.
I thank ISA specially to support this new ways to work out in International Relations.
