Linda Weiss, Professor Emeritus in Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, will present "Rise (and Stumble?) of the World's High-Tech Hegemon : The Makings (and Unmakings?) of America's Exceptional Power."

Dr. Weiss is a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, Professor Emeritus in Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, and Honorary Professor of Political Science at Aarhus University. She has lectured widely in North America, Europe, and East Asia and has held visiting research and teaching appointments at EHESS (Paris), Sheffield (SPERI), Aarhus, UCLA, the LSE, the European University Institute, University of Rome, Academia Sinica, Seoul National University, and the Kyungnam Institute for Far Eastern Studies (Seoul). Her specialism is the comparative and international politics of economic development, with a focus on state capacity and public-private sector relations. Several of her books and articles on the topics of globalisation and state power, developmental states, and trade politics have appeared in seven different language translations. Her latest book, America Inc? Innovation and Enterprise in the National Security State (2014, Cornell University Press), examines the political economy of national security in the period spanning the Cold War to the present.
