  • Symposium: Realism & Exceptionalism in US Foreign Policy: From Kissinger to Obama | ucdclinton.ie | UCD Clinton
    address the issue The highly successful symposium was followed by a wine reception to celebrate the release of Mario Del Pero s Eccentric Realist Henry Kissinger and the Making of American Foreign Policy by Cornell University Press Symposium During the 2008 American election season the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates both aspired to be understood as foreign policy realists in the mould of Henry Kissinger Although distrusted by the neoconservative right for his scepticism about American exceptionalism and the liberal left for his amoral realpolitik approach Kissinger stood once more as the sage of foreign relations who rose above partisan politics Barack Obama and John McCain both claimed that their foreign policy agenda returned to a more realistic outlook after the assertive nationalist and exceptionalist fuelled policies of the George W Bush administration As we approach the first anniversary of the Obama Presidency to what extent has realism helped to resolve problems and heal divisions from the Bush era The symposium explores the historical roots of realism and exceptionalism in the conduct of US foreign policy with particular attention to figures and events from the 1970s to today It considers the parallel challenges facing Kissinger and Obama in reconstructing a consensus for foreign policy following the division of highly costly and unpopular wars in Vietnam and Iraq To what extent has realism dictated policies for US foreign policy in an unstable international climate and rejected narratives of American exceptionalism Is realist discourse simply a response to the cold hard assessment of the facts of international relations Is there any consideration of domestic politics and the need for consensus at home The experience of the 1970s during which Kissinger s realist project eventually came undone by the power of American exceptionalism raises interesting questions regarding realism s prospects in the early years of the twenty first century Speakers Include Anders Stephanson Columbia University Andrew and Virginia Rudd Family Foundation Professor of History specializes in 20th Century American foreign relations as well as history and theory He received a B A from Gothenburg 1975 an M Phil from Oxford 1977 and a Ph D from Columbia 1986 His published books include Kennan and the Art of Foreign Policy 1989 and Manifest Destiny 1995 Mario Del Pero University of Bologna Associate Professor of US History at the Facoltà di Scienze Politiche Roberto Ruffilli of Forlì University of Bologna Italy In 2007 08 he was Kluge Fellow at the John W Kluge Center of the Library of Congress in Washington DC He has also been a research fellow at the International Center for Advanced Studies ICAS New York University 2001 02 and the Department of History European University Institute in Florence 2004 05 He has written extensively on the history of the Cold War and on transatlantic relations He is the author of five books and several articles in leading international journals such as The Journal of American History and Diplomatic History His most recent publications include Henry Kissinger e l ascesa dei neoconservatori
