Theodore Roosevelt inherited a weak presidency with few capabilities and little prestige. He turned the office into a powerful position of world leadership. How did he do it?

In the early twentieth century, the United States emerged as a world power. No one understood this change as well as Theodore Roosevelt. With his indefatigable energy, Roosevelt dragged the United States into a new role. He pioneered progressive reforms at home, and he built the institutions for the spread of American influence around the world.

Led by an expert on American history, Dr. Jeremi Suri, this seminar places the spotlight on Theodore Roosevelt's extraordinary life and its continued legacy.

This conversation is part of a six-part series on American Presidents with Dr. Jeremi Suri. Each session is designed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of a six-week series.

Jeremi Suri holds the Mack Brown Distinguished Chair for Leadership in Global Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. He is a professor in the University's Department of History and the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. Professor Suri is the author and editor of ten books on contemporary politics and foreign policy. His most recent book, The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office, was widely reviewed across the United States. Professor Suri's research and teaching have received numerous prizes. In 2007 Smithsonian Magazine named him one of America's "Top Young Innovators" in the Arts and Sciences. In 2018 he received the President’s Associates Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Texas, and the Pro Bene Meritis Award for Contributions to the Liberal Arts. His writings appear widely in blogs and print media (including the New York Times, Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, Atlantic, Wired, New Republic, Foreign Policy, and others.) Professor Suri is also a frequent public lecturer and guest on radio and television programs. He hosts a weekly podcast, “This is Democracy,” available through his professional webpage: http://jeremisuri.net.
