The Current Crisis in Russia, Part 2 (President Woodrow Wilson House, Washington, DC)

You are invited back for another evening conversation with Dr. Mary Habeck at the President Woodrow Wilson House Museum. After a sold-out lecture on July 12, Dr. Habeck, a leading scholar on military matters, will return to continue the discussion about the current situation in Russia, focusing on its implications for the U.S. and the world. Join us once again to learn how Russia's aggression is affecting current global affairs. Habeck’s second talk will be held in the historic drawing room of former President Wilson, who continues to be known for his leading ideas on international relations during World War I. This event is the third in a series of conversations on military occupations. Woodrow Wilson House Advisory Council member, Ambassador Joel Danies will moderate the Q&A.


Dr. Habeck is a strategic planner and an expert on military matters, Russia, Great Power Competition, and extremism. She teaches on these issues at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Georgetown, and American University and is a consultant for various parts of the federal government. From 2005-2013 she was an Associate Professor in Strategic Studies at SAIS, teaching courses on extremism, military history, and strategic thought. Before moving to SAIS, Dr. Habeck taught American and European military history in Yale’s history department, 1994-2005. She received her Ph.D. in history from Yale in 1996, an M.A. in international relations from Yale in 1989, and a B.A. in international studies, Russian, and Spanish from Ohio State in 1987.


Dr. Habeck was appointed by President Bush to the Council on the Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities (2006-2013), and in 2008-2009 she was the Special Advisor for Strategic Planning on the National Security Council staff, where she worked on extremism.


Her latest book, "Knowing the Enemy: Jihadist Ideology and the War on Terror," was published in 2019.
