Peter Harris

Assistant Professor



I teach classes on international security, US foreign policy, and International Relations theory, and I am available to advise students (both graduate and undergraduate) on these topics and more. Most of my current research focuses on US foreign relations with other great powers, especially China. I have a keen interest in British and European politics.

I am a regular feature contributor to the National Interest and newsletter editor for the International History and Politics section of the American Political Science Association. On campus, I coordinate remote internship opportunities for students who are interested in international security and risk analysis.

I've also written for a number of news outlets and think tanks, including the British American Security Information Council, Canadian International Council, The Diplomat, New Statesman, and World Politics Review. My work has been reprinted by outlets such as NewsweekSalon, and US News and World Report.
