High Noon on Oct. 25: President Trump and American foreign policy

Dr. Brent Nelsen

Brent Nelsen, professor of Politics and International Affairs at Furman, will talk about “American Foreign Policy in the Age of Donald J. Trump” when he speaks at the university’s High Noon fall lecture series Wednesday, October 25.

His talk begins at noon at the Upcountry History Museum-Furman. It is free and open to the public.

Has President Trump changed the direction of American foreign policy? What has changed, and what has remained the same? How are the world powers adjusting?  Dr. Nelsen will answer these questions and more as he evaluates the first 10 months of the Trump era.

Nelsen’s talk is the third of four lectures in the fall series.  Furman Communication Studies professors John Armstrong and Brandon Inabinet will close the series on Nov. 1 with a talk about “fake news” and the new media environment.

The Upcountry History Museum/Furman is located at 540 Buncombe Street in downtown Greenville’s Heritage Green area. See the complete fall schedule.
