    Full Biography

    Trygve Throntveit is Director of Strategic Partnerships at the Minnesota Humanities Center and Global Fellow for History and Public Policy at the Wilson Center. He received his bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees from Harvard University, where he also served as Assistant Director of Undergraduate Studies before joining Dartmouth College's inaugural cohort of John Sloan Dickey Fellows in US Foreign Policy and International Security. A scholar of US intellectual history, politics, foreign policy, and civic life, Dr. Throntveit seeks whenever possible to dissolve the boundaries separating academic and public life, and to make institutions more porous to the knowledge and wisdom of citizens.
