Start of the summer lecture series! Obama 2.0: The Famous First 100 Days - What Is Really Changing?

Thu, 04/18/2013 - 17:00 to 19:00
ASL will kick off the summer lecture series of 2013 with a talk by Prof. Paul Rundquist titled “Obama 2.0: The Famous First 100 Days - What Is Really Changing?” Started by Frankin D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression, the “100 Days Program” has become part of the global political lexicon to define and assess how a new adminstration seeks to engage energetically large and pressing problems in both domestic and international affairs. President Obama has also made large promises for his second term, involving the economy, social policy, immigration, foreign policy, and the environment. What we have learned during Obama’s second “100 Days Program” that helps us understand how he wants to shape his legacy in American and international history?

Please join us on April 18 at 5pm in lecture hall 13 for a lecture and discussion that is free and open to the public.

Paul Rundquist is adjunct professor of American politics and society at the Institute for American Studies here in Leipzig. Prior to coming to Germany he served some thirty years at the Congressional Research Service in Washington DC as a preeminent expert on executive-legislative relations and the functioning of the U.S. federal government.

This lecture is made possible in part by generous support of the U.S. Consulate General in Leipzig.
