Justin Vaughn, director of the Center for Idaho History and Politics, editor of The Blue Review and an associate professor of political science, has been a busy man. He recently delivered a pair of presentations in Oslo, Norway that were arranged by the State Department. In addition to the presentations, he was interviewed by Morgenbladet, one of Norway’s leading intellectual media outlets that provides in-depth coverage on political and cultural issues, and featured in an article titled “All the President’s Words“.
Vaughn also spoke at the Norwegian Institute for Defense Studies on the American president’s role in foreign policy, delivered a lecture at Bjorknes College titled “Washington, Lincoln, or Trump? How We Decide Who America’s Best – and Worst – Presidents Are,” and presented research at the European Consortium for Political Research’s General Conference at the University of Oslo on how presidential greatness assessments have evolved over time.
