Berggren presents 3 lectures on the Trump presidency in China

In November 2019, Dr. D. Jason Berggren, associate professor of political science, made a 14-day trip to China (Nov. 9-22). While there, he delivered three lectures on the Trump presidency and the 2020 election at Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. He was invited by Dr. Lin Bohai, the dean of the school of Marxism. Dr. Lin was a visiting scholar to Georgia Southwestern in Fall 2010.

Berggren lectured on Trump's political rise and the 2016 election (Nov. 12), key features of Trump's foreign policy (Nov. 15), and Trump's 2020 re-election prospects and the Democratic nomination contest (Nov. 20). The lectures were delivered before students and faculty for one hour to one and a half hours. Each lecture was followed by a question-and-answer session. This was his second academic visit to SJU. In 2013, Berggren presented three lectures on President Jimmy Carter.

During his time in China, Berggren was able to visit several historical and cultural sites in Xi'an and Chongqing, including the famed terracotta army of Emperor Qin and Xi'an's Muslim quarter and mosque. He also enjoyed the distinctive, and quite spicy, Sichuan cuisine.
