Walldorf awarded research fellowship
February 14th, 2012
Will Walldorf, an assistant professor of political science, have been awarded a research fellowship from the Earhart Foundation that buys out his classes this semester in order to work on a new book tentatively titled, “The Democracy Consensus and Patterns of Forceful Regime Change in United States Foreign Policy, 1900-2011.”
The book focuses on changes in the nation’s mood about promoting democracy abroad from 1900-2011 and discusses ways that that that mood affects patterns of forceful regime change in U.S. foreign policy. It carries direct relevance to recent wars in Iraq and Libya, while also helping us understand current and future U.S. responses to the Arab Spring.
