On Tuesday night, the Duke University Chapter of the Alexander Hamilton Society hosted an event titled "International Relations in Game of Thrones" featuring the IR zombie theorist and Tufts University professor Daniel Drezner.
The lecture blending political theory with popular television drew a crowd of 70 students and was featured in The Chronicle:
“Events like this really remind me why it’s so awesome to go to a place like Duke,” sophomore Stephen Yates said. “When your family sits you down to watch “Game of Thrones” over the summer and then you come back and you learn about how it applies to actual politics, it’s pretty cool.”
"Today, 'zero' describes perfectly the likelihood of further bilateral reductions in nuclear arms. Obama has burned all his goodwill with Congress. He won’t get any support for further unilateral cuts."
"The U.S. shift away from zero enrichment to limited enrichment represents a significant diplomatic victory for Iran."
On February 28, the Texas A&M University Chapter of the Alexander Hamilton Society hosted an event on "The 3 Ds of American Foreign Policy" which drew over 150 students.
The event, featured on The Bush School website, featured former Ambassador and Dean of the Bush School Ryan Crocker, the Bush School of Government and Public Service, as well as Andrew Natsios and Joseph Cerami, professors at the Bush School of Government and Public Service.
"Piercing, with a devastating thrust, into the depths of what it means to submit to God even in the face of excruciating tragedy."
"Congress must now decide if America’s single-digit carrier fleet is enough to meet the global demands of a superpower. The short answer is no."
In Foreign Policy, AHS speaker Kori Schake declares that the administration is making things worse in Ukraine by opening its mouth:
"The Obama White House cannot resist the temptation to parade its every move in the Ukraine crisis -- much to the detriment of its policy succeeding. The White House thinks the president is so compelling and so central to the narrative that his every utterance is advantageous."
