Alan Cafruny
Alan Cafruny, the Henry Platt Bristol Professor of International Relations, gave keynote speeches at two conferences in London during Hamilton’s spring break.

Cafruny’s first keynote, titled “Populism: The United States and European Union Compared" was presented at the conference “Right Move! Right Wing Populist Parties and Europe: A View for Italy."  The Centre for Italian Politics, Kings College, London, hosted the conference.

Cafruny also presented a talk titled “The Ukraine Crisis and the former Ottoman and Soviet Space” at a three-day international symposium. "The Balkans and the Greater Middle East in the Global Vortex."  It  celebrated  the 25th anniversary of the Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies (Routledge/Taylor and Francis) and was hosted by the University of East London, Royal Docks School of Business and Law.

Alejandra Pulido ’22, a Bristol Fellowship recipient, attended Cafruny’s lecture at King’s College London. She credits a course she took with Cafruny as contributing to the experience she had during her fellowship year.

“In the first half of my Bristol year I explored programs and services for displaced individuals in Greece, Romania, and Spain,” Pulido wrote. “Highlights include teaching Afghan women and girls to swim in the Greek island of Lesvos, and distributing emergency humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians in Bucharest.

“Being able to go on these adventures would not have been possible without the Bristols, Professor Cafruny’s European Affairs course and the impact of Hamilton’s ‘Know Thyself’ motto!”
