40@40: Arts and Humanities faculty member Stephen Rabe will discuss "Teaching U.S. Foreign Relations: Dilemmas--Personal, Local, National, and International" as part of a year-long series of 40 events (or more) created to mark UT Dallas' fourth decade as a UT System institution. Rabe's talk will take the year 1969 as its starting point and incorporate UT Dallas, President Richard Nixon, the Vietnam War, the Nixon initiative with China, and the overthrow of a constitutional government in Chile into an examination of the dilemmas inherent in the writing and teaching of U.S. foreign relations.
