The Institute of the Americas was launched by the French government in March 2007. The theme of this year’s conference is “Foreign Policy in the Americas: Between Crises and Alliances.” Delegates to this year’s conference will include scholars from Canada, France, Latin America, and the United States, as well as present and former ambassadors and diplomats from Brazil, Canada, Mexico, France, the United States and the Organization of American States.
Dr. Isabel Vagnoux, Professor of U.S. History and Foreign Policy at the Université de Provence, has organized the conference.
Rabe holds the Arts and Humanities Chair at the University of Texas at Dallas, where he has taught since 1977. He has taught or lectured in fifteen countries. Professor Rabe has written six books on the history of U.S. foreign relations. His new study, John F. Kennedy: World Leader, will appear in late 2009.
