An Example for Other Small Nations to Follow: The Irish Response to John F. Kennedy’s Message of Anti-Colonialism and Modernization during his 1963 State Visit
Deprovincializing the U.S. Presidency: John F. Kennedy as seen from the Decolonizing World
Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A.
Department of History and Political Science
What is the history of the perception of the U.S. president – including as a global president – in the decolonized/ing world? At which junctures did that perception arise, shift, and assume contrasting if not conflicting forms? Who produced, consumed, spread, and contested it? And what does this theme tell us about globalization?
These are key questions underlying this conference which, for three reasons, will focus on the presidency of John F. Kennedy.
