Iconography, Community


Professor Henrikson teaches American diplomatic history , contemporary US-European relations, and a seminar on geography, foreign policy, and world order at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, Medford, MA, USA. During the Spring of 2003 he was Fulbright/Diplomatic Academy Visiting Professor of International Relations at the Diplomatische Akademie in Vienna. His collaboration with the geographer Jean Gottmann began with his participation in the International Political Science Association's Round Table on the "center and periphery" theme in Paris at the Fondation Nationale des Sciences Politiques in 1978, and his ensuing contribution, "America's changing place in the world," to the volume, Centre and Periphery: Spatial Variation in Politics (1980), edited by Gottmann. He also contributed " 'A small, cozy town, global in scope': Washington, DC," an article for a thematic issue on "capital cities" that Professor Gottmann organized for Ekistics, vol. 50, no. 299 (March/April 1983). The author's present essay is based in part on his chapter, 'The role of metropolitan regions in making a new Atlantic community," in Ever Closer Partnership: Policy-Making in US-EU Relations, ed. Éric Philippart and Pascaline Winand (Brussels, Presses Interuniversitaires Europeenees - Peter Lang, 2001).
