LEWISBURG, Pa. — Alexander T.J. Lennon will give the talk, "U.S. Grand Strategy: Principles of an Interdependent Order," on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center at Bucknell University.
The talk, free and open to the public, is made possible through the generosity of Charles and Gail Dombeck and sponsored by the international relations program.
"The International Relations program is pleased to welcome Lennon, who has recently completed a major project assessing the future of United States foreign policy, and who will be sharing his findings with us," said David Mitchell, assistant professor of political science and international relations at Bucknell.
Support for democracy and world order
