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.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
