Keylor in The Boston Herald on North Korean Missile Test


William Keylor, Professor of International Relations and History at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was recently interviewed on what the recent election of South Korean President Moon Jae-in means for the future of relations between South Korea and North Korea. 

Keylor was quoted in a May 15, 2017 article in The Boston Herald entitled “North Korea: Missile Can Reach U.S.

From the text of the article:

“The new president of South Korea, unlike any other president of South Korea, has indicated an interest in open dialogue. What is the response going to be from North Korea?” asked Boston University international relations professor William Keylor. “On the optimistic side, maybe it was a way of sort of blowing off some steam and then accepting an opening from the South. Maybe it will lead to something.”

Keylor served four consecutive terms as Chairman of the Department of History at Boston University (1988-2000) and has been Director of the International History Institute since 1999. At Boston University, he has received the Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Methodist Scholar-Teacher Award. Learn more about him here.
