Mar 18, 2009
Dr. Robert Waters, visiting assistant professor of history at Ohio Northern University, will lecture on "U.S. Relations with Africa: History, Policy, Future" during the Phi Beta Delta International Forum in The James F. Dicke College of Business Administration, room 230, on Tuesday, March 24, from 7-8 p.m.

Waters will examine the often-surprising story of U.S. relations with Africa, with a focus on the years since World War II. He also will discuss the future of Africa, as well as the United States' experience with its first African-American president.

Waters earned his juris doctorate and his doctorate from the University of Mississippi. His teaching and research focus on the United States, Africa and the Caribbean. His book, "Historical Dictionary of U.S.-Africa Relations" will be published this month.

Phi Beta Delta is the honor society for international scholars. Founded in 1987, the nominees for membership in the Gamma Upsilon chapter of Phi Beta Delta include outstanding faculty, staff, students and alumni. The society hopes to integrate those who possess a deep commitment to international affairs, education and research. One of the functions of the Gamma Upsilon chapter has been to create a regular forum in which international affairs can be discussed using University sources and by seeking prominent individuals with varied experience in international affairs recruited from beyond the University community.

This event is free and open to the public.
