Newswise — President Richard Nixon once declared that the “special relationship” between the United States and Canada was “dead.” However, dealings between the two countries have evolved since the early 1970s. But what will this relationship look like under President Trump?

Jacob Remes, a clinical assistant professor at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, is available for comment on a range of issues facing these two countries and what, collectively, they signify under a new American president:

• President-elect Trump’s promise to do away with NAFTA• Differences over the handling of Syrian refugees• Oil and natural gas pipelines that run through both countries• Americans considering moving to Canada

Remes, whose published works include “Disaster Citizenship: Survivors, Solidarity, and Power in the Progressive Era” (University of Illinois Press, 2016), has been a fellow in Canadian Studies at Harvard University’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and holds a doctorate in history from Duke University.

Reporters wishing to speak with Professor Remes should contact James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.
