Greetings! After a hiatus of several years, we’re excited to announce this new forum in service to the IDCE community. Engage will provide a platform for ideas, critical reflection, program updates, faculty research and project information, interviews and other features of interest to students, faculty, alums and any who share our interests and concerns.
IDCE is a place of active scholarship. We’ll strive to make Engage a fitting compliment to that pursuit. Our first post (below) concerns exciting new curriculum revisions coming to IDCE with insights into the process by Department Director Edward Carr (and here’s a compelling podcast Prof. Carr has recently developed for NewSecurityBeat). Many more stories and discussions will be appearing soon.
Please (1) bookmark us now, and (2) follow us on Facebook, where we’ll announce new posts as they’re published.
Finally, and most importantly, please share your ideas! If there’s a subject you’d like to see covered here, leave a comment or write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want Engage to stimulate conversation and dialog, and the more we hear about what concerns you, the better.

A word about your humble blog administrator: I’m a freelance editor and international development consultant. I taught the IDCE writing workshop/MA paper class for three years in the mid-2000s. Other past employers include the Center for International Forestry Research in Bogor, Indonesia and Oxfam America. I’m also a working fantasy novelist.
I’m truly delighted to be working with the IDCE community again.
