More on the speaker:

Dr. Yoav Fromer is the head of the newly-founded Center for the Study of the United States at Tel Aviv University and a fellow in the School of Government and Diplomacy.

Dr. Fromer's research explores the relationship between politics and culture and focuses primarily on modern American Liberalism, Conservatism, and Foreign Policy. Instilled with a strong interdisciplinary bent, both his research and teaching transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries and incorporate a variety of methods and perspectives from the social sciences and the humanities. Accordingly, he teaches in the social science and humanities departments an array of courses about American foreign policy, history, politics and literature, as well as broader introductory courses in the Liberal Arts about the history of western political thought and European literature.

In addition to his academic work, Dr. Fromer is a senior editor and commentator for the Israeli Daily Newspaper Yediot Aharonot. He also writes regularly for the Washington Post and Tablet Magazine about American politics, international relations, and the Middle East.
