Karl Schonberg holds a PhD in international relations from the University of Virginia. He came to St. Lawrence in 1999 after holding a doctoral fellowship at the Brookings Institution and teaching in a visiting position at Dickinson College. He teaches courses in international security, international law and organization, and U.S. foreign policy, as well as a First Year Program course in globalization and identity. He is the author of two books and numerous articles on the intellectual history of U.S. foreign relations, constitutional war powers, and international relations theory. His most recent book, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2009, described the process by which a set of ideas about the identity of the United States and other international actors gave rise to the Bush administration’s policies in Iraq from 2003-2007.
