March 28, 2002

[ Richard Ned Lebow Photo ] DELAWARE, OHIO -- Richard Ned Lebow, professor of political science, history and psychology at The Ohio State University and director of the Mershon Center, an interdisciplinary research institute that addresses problems of national security and public policy, will speak at Ohio Wesleyan on Wednesday, April 3. The lecture is set for 7 p.m. in the R.W. Corns Building, room 312. Lebow will talk about "Combating Terrorism: The Intelligence Dilemma."

Lebow's research is in the interstices of history, psychology and political science and he uses historical evidence and psychological concepts to address substantive political questions. He is the author or co-author of six books, the editor of six others, and author of numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals. His most recent books are The Art of Bargaining (1996) and International Relations Theory and the End of the Cold War (1995). He currently is studying counterfactual arguments and with psychologists, Peter Suedfeld and Phil Tetlock, is conducting a series of experiments to test how policymakers and ordinary people use and respond to counterfactual arguments.

Receiving his Ph.D. from The City College of New York, Lebow previously taught political science at The City College of New York, Cornell University, and The Johns Hopkins Graduate School of International Affairs in Bologna, Italy, and public policy at the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs.

The lecture is sponsored by OWU's International Studies Program and is free and open to the public. For more information, call 740-368-3780.
