My scholarly colleagues include Nicholas Cull at the University of Southern California Annenberg School, with whom I co-edited the second edition of the Routledge Handbook of Public Diplomacy, and the late great Philip M. Taylor of the University of Leeds, with whom I co-edited the first edition of the Routledge Handbook of Public Diplomacy.
I co-edited The SAGE Handbook of Propaganda with UK-based Paul Baines and Nicholas O’Shaughnessy. Two new book projects are to co-author the 8th edition of the Jowett and O’Donnell SAGE classic, Propaganda and Persuasion, and author Media and Propaganda in Modern Conflict: An Encylopedia for Bloomsbury/ABC-CLIO.
I’m proud to be associated as a faculty member who helped advance public diplomacy in curriculum and practice at the University of Southern California Annenberg School and Syracuse University S.I. Newhouse School. More recently I served as the first full-time public diplomacy professor in Japan with the title, Pax Mundi (“World Peace”) Distinguished Professor of Public Diplomacy at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies. I remain a strong advocate for person-to-person exchanges, having served as a two-time Fulbright scholar (University of Freiburg, Sophia University) and Social Science Research Council Abe Fellow.
My global experience includes teaching and research faculty appointments in China (Schwarzman Scholars Program, Tsinghua University), Japan (Keio, Sophia), Israel (Reichman/IDC-Herzliya), and Malaysia (UiTM). I’ve guest lectured widely from Singapore to London, Palestine to Paris.
