Christopher Ferrero on The Iran Narrative and US Foreign Policy: Its History, Its Role in the 2016 Election, and Its Impact after the Nuclear Deal

Christopher Ferrero, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Political Science Ph.D., University of Virginia

Dr. Chris Ferrero is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University. Dr. Ferrero completed his PhD in Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia in December 2011. His dissertation, entitled "The Iran Narrative: Ideas, Discourse, and Domestic Politics in the Making of US Foreign Policy toward Iran, 1990-2003," examines the extent to which popular American characterizations of Iran as a fanatical terrorist state have constrained presidents from more vigorously pursuing engagement with the Islamic Republic. He is developing a book manuscript base on this research. 

Open to the public.
