• Neil Brenner的CV

    Neil Brenner,NYU社會系教授,是我很喜歡的社會學家。原因是他的研究把「空間」、「城市」及「國家理論」做了很好的結合,這讓我在研究過程中得到很多啟發(推薦:"Urban governance and the production of new state spaces in western Europe, 1960-2000," Review of International Political Economy, 11:3, August (2004): 447-488。PDF)。

    自述他的研究興趣如下:
    my work has developed an explicitly spatialized, scale-attuned analysis of modern statehood. In this conception—which is elaborated most systematically in Ch. 3 of my book, New State Spaces—state spaces are viewed as the presuppositions, arenas and outcomes of historically specific political strategies.

    State space is thus not a fixed platform or container for political life, but a constitutive dimension of regulatory processes that is continually transformed through ongoing sociopolitical experimentation and contestation.
    不過,剛剛看到他的學歷:
    Ph.D. 1999 (Political Science), University of Chicago; M.A. 1996 (Geography), University of California (Los Angeles); M.A. 1993 (Political Science), University of Chicago; B.A. 1991 (Philosophy), Yale University.
    嗯,三年就拿到博士學位?啊。。。

    說不定他博士是跟第二個碩士一起念的...(拼命找理由)

    嚴格的說,他博士念了6年,寬鬆的說,他博士念了8年。

    不,我覺得跟第一個碩士是有關的。第一個碩士不是在芝大拿的嗎?學分多少會減免。

    tacchang的猜测是对的。Brenner去UCLA毕业之后,在Chicago继续做他读geography时做的研究,就是欧洲城市管治的rescalling,这个切合政治学的领域,而且他本来也已经有一个Chicago的硕士学位了。所以大部分课程免修,直接考Comprehensive,就开始写了。
