Seminar Series on the US Foreign Policy | Trump Was Not Unique: Continuity and Change in American Foreign Policy
Andrew Gawthorpe (University of Leiden)
Available in video:
Dr. Andrew Gawthorpe will address the degree to which continuity versus change exists in US foreign policy in recent presidential administrations. The talk will emphasize the continuity of the ‘imperial presidency’, highlighting the extent to which the ‘outlier’ Trump administration departed from traditional US policies, or not, as well as providing an assessment of the Biden administration relative to its predecessor.
Dr. Andrew Gawthorpe is a Lecturer at Leiden University focusing on modern American history and foreign policy. His first book was a history of American nation-building during the Vietnam War and is available from Cornell University Press. Andrew writes widely for popular media as well as academic publications and hosts a podcast about American politics, foreign policy and culture called America Explained.
