Anti-Americanism in world politics topic of Kennedy Center lecture March 3

How the United States stands in the world political game is the topic Peter J. Katzenstein of Cornell University will address at the weekly International Forum Series Wednesday, March 3, at noon in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium at Brigham Young University.

Katzenstein’s lecture is titled, "American Primacy and Anti-Americanism in World Politics."

"As a European who has lived and worked for many years in the United States, Professor Katzenstein has a unique perspective on American primacy," says Wade Jacoby, director of BYU's Center for the Study of Europe. "He has also published widely on the distinctive German, Japanese and American approaches to terrorism."

Katzenstein, the Walter S. Carpenter Jr. professor of international studies at Cornell, researches such areas as security policy and political economy, the relation between international and domestic politics, Germany in Europe and Japan in Asia.

In 1999, Katzenstein was awarded the German Marshall Fund Advanced Research Award for Research on Europe, a grant enabling him and his research partner, Elena Iankova, to explore the eastern enlargement of the European Union.

Katzenstein is a member of several organizations, including the American Political Science Association, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Council of European Studies.

He received a Bachelor of Arts from Swarthmore College in political science, economics and literature in 1967. Only one year later, he had completed his master's degree in international relations at the London School of Economics before earning a doctorate from Harvard University in 1973.

This lecture is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Europe and will be archived online. Those interested in learning more about Kennedy Center events will find archived lectures and a calendar online at http://kennedy.byu.edu.
