Conference set on post-Sept. 11 world politics, May 3
Posted April 25, 2002; 05:54 p.m.
A conference on "The New Era in World Politics After Sept. 11" is planned for 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 3, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
The editors of World Politics, a journal of international relations published by Princeton's Center of International Studies, have invited five distinguished scholars to discuss the potential consequences of the events of last fall -- to identify the crucial questions and issues that arise from the attacks and the response. The speakers will begin to define the parameters of a more extended debate on how world politics as a whole may be altered by the Sept. 11 tragedy and its aftermath, how those and similar events should be analyzed, and what strategies might be followed in such scholarship.
The conference program is as follows:
- 12:30 p.m. -- "Sept. 11 and U.S.-Russian Relations," Jack Matlock, the John Weinberg/Goldman Sachs and Co. Visiting Professor of Public and International Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School.
- 1:30 p.m. -- "The Trump Card: Osama bin Laden's Use of Palestine in Historical Perspective," Michael Doran, assistant professor of Near Eastern studies at Princeton.
- 2:30 p.m. -- "Sept. 11 and the Resurgence of Religion in International Affairs," Daniel Philpott, assistant professor of government and international studies at the University of Notre Dame.
- 3:30 p.m. -- "American Asian Policy and the New Era in World Politics," Lowell Dittmer, professor of political science at the University of California-Berkeley.
- 4:30 p.m. -- "Islam and Authoritarianism," Steven Fish, associate professor of political science at the University of California-Berkeley.
