What can we expect from a new presidential term in America?  America remains strongly divided and the political divisions within the Congress may limit what goals a Biden administration can achieve.  Internationally, the election results were greeted with optimism, as in the Tweet from the mayor of Paris: “Welcome back, America.” Will a post-Trump administration clearly result in a return to American multinationalism in its international policy?  Will Trump’s impact on American politics and policies have long-term effects? Biden has said that he will be a “transitional President.”  But, where will the transition lead?  The lecture will touch on these various issues and suggest some possible outcomes. A question and answer period will follow afterwards.
