BYU faculty panel to discuss post-election U.S. foreign policy, Nov. 12

Four Brigham Young University professors will discuss “What’s Next? Post-Election Perspectives on U.S. Foreign Policy” Wednesday, Nov. 12, at noon in the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies Conference room, 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

President-elect Barack Obama campaigned with a message for change. Will that mean a change in the current economic crisis that has spread to foreign markets? Will that mean a change in the long-standing support given to Israel? Will that mean a change in the current troop deployments in Iran, Afghanistan and elsewhere around the world? Will that mean a change in the U.S. stance on global environmental issues?

Professors Darren G. Hawkins and Valerie M. Hudson, political science, and Andrew L. Johns, history, will join Kennedy Center Fellow Stan A. Taylor, an emeritus professor of political science, in discussing what the change in administration may mean. The panelists will also take questions from the audience.

This event will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center events, see the calendar online at For more information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or
