Faculty Information:  Petros Vamvakas, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Political Science.  

 

I am a native of Greece and someone who has kept in touch with Greek politics through frequent visits and research projects. Although my work has concentrated on issues of security, democratization, and the role of international institutions, I am particularly interested in identifying historical and theoretical connections that define the contemporary political landscape. For instance, while Thucydides' Peloponnesian War has been widely recognized as not only an important descriptive account of the war between Athens and Sparta, more importantly, it has also become the definitive textual cannon of contemporary power politics. In fact strategists referred to the follies and lessons of the Peloponnesian War to analyze the Cold War confrontation between the US and the Soviet Union. In addition to International Relations, and Political Theory, I teach International Law, Politics of Latin America, Revolution and Nationalism, and Street Democracy and the Politics of Protest.
