Paudyn, Bartholomew

Bartholomew Paudyn just concluded a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria and a Visiting Fellowship at the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR) at the University of Warwick.

Currently, he is involved in a project that problematises the role of credit ratings in the European sovereign debt crisis and how authoritative knowledge is constituted and deployed in the politics of creditworthiness.
