Theodore Roosevelt and America's Place in the World Arena
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.
~ ~ ~ Theodore Roosevelt to John Hay, American Ambassador to Britain, June 7, 1897 ~ ~ ~
The Dickinson State University 2007 Theodore Roosevelt Symposium is titled "Theodore Roosevelt and America's Place in the World Arena." This year's symposium will focus on the years 1880-1919, 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. Joining him will be an all-star lineup of Roosevelt scholars and authors, including Dr. H.W. Brands, Dr. Lori Lyn Bogle, Dr. John Milton Cooper, Dr. Kristin Hoganson, Tweed Roosevelt, great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt. The symposium also will feature Dickinson State University faculty members Dr. Steven Doherty, assistant professor of political science, and Dr. Jon Brudvig, director of the DSU Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program.
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.
Full Symposium Cost if registered by August 31 is $155/person
