The End of the American Century? A Panel on Politics, History, and the U.S. Role in the World

The United States is a global superpower undergoing transformation. In 1941, the journalist Henry Luce famously wrote that the 20th century was ?the American century,? shaped by American political, ideological, and moral leadership. There are indications that this era is coming to an end. What international role does the United States play under the Trump presidency? How has it changed historically? And why do we care so much about U.S. politics in Sweden? In this roundtable talk, three prominent scholars discuss American politics from an international and historical perspective. We provide analyses beyond the reporting of daily news.
