Shortlist for the Duckies 2018 Revealed

March 21, 2018 2223

Duckies silhouetteThe shortlist for the Online Achievement in International Studies (OAIS) Awards, otherwise known as the Duckies, has been announced. As the ‘online’ in the name suggests, the Duckies honor achievement in blogging and social media; their origin dates to 2013 and the Duck of Minerva world politics blog, hence the names ‘Duckies.’

A collaborative partnership between SAGE and the International Studies Association’s Online Media Caucus to support and develop debates around public policy and the social sciences, the Duckies, going since 2013, have become a core event on the international studies circuit, bringing together new and experienced voices to debate issues within this prevalent field.

Ahead of the awards presentation on Friday, April 6, three influential international relations bloggers — Tanisha Fazal at the University of Minnesota, Steve Saideman at Carleton University, and Peter Trumbore of Oakland University — will give short Ignite presentations, offering an insight into how they create and maintain their own unique blogs.
