International Scholars Debate Provincialism, Cosmopolitanism in the Fulbright Legacy

In September, scholars from around the world will meet at the University of Arkansas to discuss Sen. J. William Fulbright’s foreign policy legacy. Scholars from Australia, Europe and the United States have been invited to present papers at a conference addressing “J. William Fulbright in International Perspective: Liberal Internationalism and U.S. Global Influence.” Fulbright was elected to the Senate in 1944 and served Arkansas for three decades. In 1959, he was named chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. As the longest-serving chairman, Fulbright left a lasting imprint on the nation’s foreign policy. He wrote several books on the subject, including The Arrogance of Power (1966), The Price of Empire (1967) and The Crippled Giant: American Foreign Policy and its Domestic Consequences (1972), which still resonate with today’s policy makers.
