      Theodore Roosevelt and America's Place in the World Arena
      Symposium dates: September 13-15, 2007

      The Theodore Roosevelt Symposium is part of Dickinson State University's initiative to raise the profile of Theodore Roosevelt.  Each year the symposium focuses on a major Roosevelt theme.  This year's theme is "Theodore Roosevelt and America's Place in the World Arena." This year's symposium will focus on the years 1880-1919.  This was a period in which the United States increased the size of its armed forces, particularly the Navy, acquired its first off-shore colonies, and challenged the great powers of Europe in the world's arena.  Roosevelt was the foremost advocate of this national movement, in his capacities as Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Vice President and ultimately President of the United States.  

      Dickinson State University Theodore Roosevelt Scholar in Residence Clay Jenkinson will serve as moderator for the symposium.  Featured during this event will be an all-star cast of authors/scholars including Dr. H.W. Brands, author of Bound to Empire: The United States and the Philippines and The Last Romantic, Dr. Lori Lyn Bogle of the U.S. Naval Academy, Dr. John Milton Cooper, author of The Warrior and the Priest, and Dr. Kristin Hoganson, author of Fighting for American Manhood: How Gender Politics Provoked the Spanish-American and Philippine-American Wars, and Tweed Roosevelt, great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt.
      We are finalizing the details of the symposium and promise that this event will live up to the expectations created by the first symposium: widely recognized Roosevelt authors and scholars, lively presentations, an engaging field trip and plenty of southwestern North Dakota hospitality.  We are confident this symposium will enlighten you and answer many questions about Theodore Roosevelt and America's Place in the World Arena.  See http://www.dsu.nodak.edu/TR_Symposium.asp for more details

        Symposium dates: September 13-15, 2007

        Is America a weakling, to shrink from the work of the great world powers? No! The young giant of the West stands on a continent and clasps the crest of an ocean in either hand.  Our nation, glorious in youth and strength, looks into the future with eager eyes and rejoices as a strong man to run a race.
