Dr. James Lockhart first SSN Brief
Earlier this month, Dr. James Lockhart, Assistant Professor of History at AUD, was pleased to accept an invitation to join the Scholars Strategy Network (SSN), headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the US.
This network seeks to improve public policy and strengthen democracy in the United States and abroad by organizing scholars working in America's colleges and universities, and connecting them and their research to policymakers, citizens’ associations, and the media.
SSN members spell out the implications of their research in ways that are broadly accessible. They engage in consultations with policymakers in Washington, DC and state capitals. They make regular contributions to the media and share findings and ideas with journalists and bloggers. Many SSN scholars also work with advocates and civic organizations to address pressing public challenges at the national, state, and local levels.
Dr. Lockhart’s first SSN Brief, “How Getting History Right Can Improve Relations between America and the Global South
,” summarizes the key findings that his forthcoming book, Chile, the CIA, and the Cold War: A Transatlantic Perspective
(Edinburgh University Press) will elaborate in more detail.
