American-Russian expert George Hudson to deliver Kennedy Lecture at Ohio University-Chillicothe

George E. Hudson, Ph.D., a nationally recognized scholar of Russian-American politics, will deliver the Kennedy Lecture Series keynote address at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the Bennett Hall auditorium at Ohio University-Chillicothe.  He will speak on an especially timely topic, “A New Cold War? The State of Russian-American Relations,” which includes a debunking of the notion of another Cold War. There will be time for questions from the audience.

His talk, which is sponsored by OU-C’s Cultural Committee, is free and open to the public.
Hudson specializes in Russian security issues as well as Russian-American relations and is currently conducting research on the U.S.-Russia-Georgia triangle of relations. He is editor of Soviet National Security Policy Under Perestroika, co-editor (with Joseph Kruzel) of American Defense Annual, 1985-86, and has written more than 90 articles, op-ed pieces and conference papers about Russia and the Soviet Union in books, journals and newspapers.

He is a retired professor of political science and director of the Russian and Central Eurasian Studies Program at Wittenberg University. Presently, Hudson is teaching a course on Russian politics in the Department of Political Science at Ohio State University and serves as a faculty affiliate of Ohio State’s Mershon Center for International Security Studies, with which he has long been associated.

The Kennedy Lecture Series strives to bring esteemed speakers to campus to share their perspectives and insights.
