New Directions in American Foreign Policy:
The Trump Administration
Tuesdays, April 4, 11, 18 & 25 at 11 am
Numerous statements made during the campaign, as well as the people he is surrounding himself with, leave little doubt that President Trump is intent on altering the direction of American foreign policy. In this series we examine Trump’s statements, the national security team he has selected, and signs during his early months in office that indicate shifts in America’s policies toward Russia, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, our European allies, and close neighbors like Mexico and Canada. Dr. Douglas W. Simon, professor emeritus of political science specializing in international affairs at Drew University and a two-time recipient of the Drew’s Distinguished Teaching Award, will present this four-part series.

What came after the Impressionists? Well, Post-Impressionism for one thing, the term first coined by the art critic Roger Fry in 1906. Learn how the artists of this new art movement, still involved with the bright colors and real-life focus of the Impressionists, also struck out on their own, each in his own particular way. Michael Norris, Ph. D., has been an art educator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for over 20 years. He will present this four-part series, highlighting artists such as Seurat, van Gogh, Gauguin, and Cézanne.
