Whether by design or accident, the Trump administration has often torn up the rule book on how to behave at the international level. Trump's unusual approach has attracted most of our attention but what does the rest of the ‘world’ think about the US and how do these states act in the international arena? This panel brings in a number of experts to shed light on what the rest of the world is doing and thinking. Each panellist will have 5 minutes and then the discussion will be open to you, the public. It promises to be a rich and engaging conversation, and is open to everyone interested in world affairs.

This discussion is organised by the British International Studies Association (BISA) US Foreign Policy Working group in association with Waterstones bookstore and Liverpool John Moores University.

The panellists are Steven Erlanger, Diplomatic Correspondent for the New York Times, Dr Xin (Calvin) Liu (Chinese expert) LJMU, Dr Ruth Deyermond, Kings College London (Russian Expert) Dr Dimitrios Anagnokstasis University of Aberdeen (European expert) Dr Geraldo Zahran, Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paolo (Latin & South American expert) & Dr Maria Ryan, University of Nottingham (US expert) .

Can art and science collaborations have a real world benefit to society?

Art and science are often seen as two different entities with very separate ideas of what constitutes research. The MA Art in Science Programme at Liverpool School of Art and Design aims to bring together artists and scientists to explore the boundaries of art and science.

Mark Roughley, lecturer in 3D Digital Art, will discuss new areas of practice-based research and will present some recent student projects including: "Seeds Under Threat", "Fata Morgana" and "To Donate or Not to Donate?"
