The distinguished American researcher of Thucydides is going to focus on Thucydides’ relevance for international politics today. The title of his lecture is: Re-imagining Thucydides: What IR’s first scholar tells us about contemporary international politics.
Andrew R. Novo studied Classics at Princeton University before obtaining a Master’s degree in International Relations and a PhD in Modern History from St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford. His research interests include Strategic Studies, International Relations, US Foreign Policy and Military History. He has taught, among others, at Georgetown University, University of Cyprus, and has worked as a researcher at the Harvard Business School. He is also the author of the book: When Small Countries Crash.
The goal of “Thucydides lectures“ series is to highlight the value of the ancient Greek author’s work with an emphasis on International Relations issues, and to enhance scientific dialogue and research on Thucydides. In addition, they contribute to building up a network of cooperation with foreign researchers and Universities. Scientific networking is a priority for our Department. This academic year we have already hosted nine academics from Europe and the US. More lectures are scheduled for the spring semester in the context of the “Thucydides Lectures“ and the Erasmus + program.
