About James Lockhart
I study the United States and the world/American foreign relations, specializing in US-Latin American relations, particularly southern South America, during the Cold War. Among other contributions, I approach the United States and Latin America from a broadly transatlantic perspective, taking the international community into account, rather than the more narrow and more usual US-centered, inter-American relations one.
I am currently revising my dissetation for publication through a British university press, which will happen in early 2018.
I lecture on United States and world history and offer several survey, upper-division, and graduate courses. I have lectured at the University of Arizona, Department of History and at the Embry-Riddle College of Security and Intelligence, Department of Global Affairs and Intelligence Studies as well. I am currently assistant professor of history at the American University in Dubai's Department of International and Middle Eastern Studies. I am a member of the Scholars Strategy Network, serve on the editorial board of the Journal of Intelligence History, and often contribute to War on the Rocks, an online magazine serving defense intellectuals and the national-security community.
