Key Issues in American Foreign Policy: From George Washington to “America First”

Teacher Training / Fully booked

 

This seminar will examine key issues and moments in US foreign policy that are crucial to understanding America’s evolving role in the world: George Washington’s Farewell Address and the Monroe Doctrine, American imperialism in the late 19th century, US involvement in the World Wars, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War.

 

Finally, we will take a look at the present era starting with the 1990s “New World Order” and the post-9/11 “War on Terror” all the way to Obama’s disengagement policy and Trump’s “America First” slogan. We will ask how US interests, power, politics, and ideology have shaped American involvement abroad over the centuries.

 

As usual, political cartoons and satirical videos will help liven up the serious issues at hand.
