Past and present grand strategies, big ideas concerning the United States’ role in world affairs are to be discussed as topics for Monday’s Science Pub. Old World Deli will graciously host the event this Oct. 10 at the usual 6-8 p.m. meeting time downtown.
Speaker Christopher McKnight Nichols, professor at OSU’s School of History, Philosophy, and Religion, will outline global scale strategies of foreign policy devised by presidents from George Washington right on through Barack Obama. Public opinion polls and changing sentiments may rule the daily headlines, but grander U.S. global means and ends have long been subject to more in-depth debate. Dr. Nichols also serves as Director of the Citizenship and Crisis Initiative at Oregon State University.
Old World Deli hosts Science Pub at 341 2nd St. downtown the second Monday of most months, and is sponsored by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the Downtown Corvallis Association, and OSU’s Terra magazine. Mark your calendars for next month too, Nov. 14 – Viking Mars Missions: The History, Stories, and Influence on Mars Exploration.
